From natural catastrophes to fast evolving regulation and increasing media scrutiny of environmental liability risks, climate change and the green transition will have a far-reaching, global impact on the future of risk management. The pace of environmental change is set to define business decision-making for years to come and reshape how businesses approach risk. However, for many, dealing with the immediate energy transition pressures in an uncertain geopolitical landscape is proving a distraction from the overarching, immense risk of climate change.

Join this webinar to hear from an expert panel about emerging environmental risks, like new pollution liabilities linked to extreme weather events. We will explore the latest learnings in risk management, underpinned by the findings of Beazley’s newest Risk & Resilience research. We will also examine what the transition to Net Zero will mean for risk managers, practically, in the environmental-led risk environment of the future. Finally, we will delve into why we find it much easier to focus on "here and now" risks, and how to overcome the difficulties of embedding environmental resilience for the long-term.

Note: All downloads and related contact information will be accessible to the webinar sponsor.
