Climate Mitigation and Adaptation

Our clients must evaluate the impact of their projects on the climate, and the vulnerability of those projects to climate change. Climate-proofing is no easy task. It is not possible to demonstrate neutrality, without careful attention to the scope of covered emissions, both direct and indirect, to the appropriate breadth of upstream and downstream impact, and to consistency with pathways to 2030 and 2050 targets. It is not possible to demonstrate resilience, without careful attention to acute events, like floods and drought, and chronic events, like sea-level rise. In this session, Brendan Slattery offered insights gained from helping clients with these practical challenges.
