The Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL), together with the Cambridge Judge Business School and the European Climate Foundation, have developed a new series of briefs that summarize the latest climate science for the business community. The thirteen briefings are based on the Fifth Assessment Report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and include short, sector-specific briefings on Agriculture, Buildings, Cities, Employment, Energy, Extractive and Primary Industries, Fisheries and Aquaculture, Investors and Finance, Military, Tourism and Transport. All documents have a Creative Commons License and are free to use.
The series includes innovative and easily understandable infographics and key facts, and summarizes the likely impacts of climate change on different sectors, while also looking at the capacity for these sectors to adapt to climate change and to contribute to emissions reductions. The briefings also seek to kick-start a conversation around the risk climate change poses to business and the opportunities for business responses. The Fifth Assessment Report presents a key moment to update business strategies in line with the latest information on how climate change will affect natural resources, operations, infrastructure and the global policy environment.
