The next 15 years will represent a time of unprecedented change in the global economy, as new development, investment decisions and technology development will all be delivered in the context of climate change. This will be a profoundly important issue for businesses, representing a growing risk to manage but also a driver of huge new markets and opportunities.
CISL has had a longstanding programme of engagement around climate change, in particular with our flagship business platform, The Prince of Wales's Corporate Leaders Group. This work is focused on supporting engagement between businesses and policy makers to unlock a structural transformation of the economy, able to cut and ultimately eliminate carbon emissions and increase resilience and efficiency.
Other key work includes the Green Growth Platform which brings together European governments and parliamentarians with businesses, together with targeted educational work on climate science, and selected practical research and innovation projects.
