Climate change will undoubtedly have major economic and business implications worldwide, so Lloyd’s 360° Risk Insight and the International Institute of Strategic Studies (IISS) have joined forces to explore the issues from a business perspective.Competition for resources and nations becoming more protective over assets are likely to be among the changes as climate change takes hold. But it’s not all bad news. Business opportunities are likely to emerge, ranging from energy efficiency and water conservation to security.
Nobody can predict how quickly climate change will happen or what the consequences might be, so plans have to take into account a range of outcomes and be revised regularly.
Developing systems for using water more efficiently will literally become a matter of life or death as countries that were once used to plenty could find themselves drying out.
