Past Event | Building Resilience and Adapting to Climate Risks

Our sincere thank you to the speakers Jérôme Bos, Senior Advisor Business Development at AXA Climate; Derek Wu, Lead Consultant at AXA Climate and Sébastien Dufour, Environment Transformation Manager at Schneider Electric for a great session.

They shared about challenges to climate adaptation faced by companies today; how can climate analysis be translated into actionable practices for strategic decision-making and mitigation. They also presented a useful tool to upskill and engage employees in their organisations to succeed in the sustainable transition.
