Businesses can play a crucial role in addressing the social and equity dimensions of climate change by adopting sustainable practices in their operations, supply chains, and products. This includes reducing greenhouse gas emissions, using renewable energy sources, and promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Additionally, businesses can also support local communities and marginalized groups who are disproportionately affected by the impacts of climate change through investments in infrastructure, education, and healthcare.
Join us for our discussion with a panel of experts to explore these issues and the implications for business action.
