Breakout Session: Perspectives of Business and Finance to Address Climate Change Solutions

Increasingly, the business community and associated stakeholders are factoring in the impact of climate change on decision-making and operations. Firms and investors appreciate that climate risk is now a fundamental component of future growth potential and investment opportunities. Adequately managing that risk requires an understanding of a great variety of influences, including supply chain contributions, consumer behavior and the shifting sands of the political environment. This panel will highlight how these questions inspire current research at the Smeal College of Business and provide an opportunity for attendees to contribute questions and ideas to the discussion.
