The New Normal - Storms, Tides, and Sea Level Rise: 5 Key Questions Your Business Needs to Ask to Be Prepared

We are in a new era that is creating extraordinary crises as well as opportunities. As stewards of the environment and practitioners tasked with implementing sustainability visions at our company, we must grasp this challenge and begin a process of "Intelligent Adaptation." By doing this we can prepare our companies to reduce financial exposures, protects assets and ensure our ability to operate. Drawing on historical geologic proof, and applying recent lessons from Super Storm Sandy, John Englander's presentation illuminates why it's necessary for business to take a "long" view, help you assess your business risks, build the right foundation for adaptation, and advocate the importance of this issue to the C-Suite.
