Connecting climate change with strategy

Monday, 19 September 2022


    Climate change is now increasingly important as a sustainability concern and as a strategic driver for boards. Join us on September 26 for an AICD webinar hosted by climate advisory group Pollination: Connecting Climate Change with Strategy, to explore how to integrate climate change into your organisation’s strategy.

    Australia faces significant risks but also opportunities in the role that directors and boards and executives have in shaping the country’s commercial response to the challenges of climate change, according to Zoe Whitton, MD, Head of Impact at Pollination.

    Climate change is driving transition and will deliver a lot of physical changes to the world around us, and also shape decisionmaking over the next few decades, she says. Whitton will be one of the presenters of the webinar.

    Climate change is one of a broad suite of ESG issues that boards oversee. Traditionally treated as compliance or stakeholder-driven concerns, boards now need to consider ways to create commercial value in an economy transitioning to net zero and incorporate climate change into the organisation's strategic direction.

    Hosted by experts from Pollination, the webinar will also feature a director panel which will cover: 

    • Embedding climate opportunity and risk into strategic thinking
    • How to undertake climate change scenario planning 
    • Building capability in the board and executive team
    • Key questions directors should be asking themselves
    • Insights from directors working at the cutting edge 

    The session will provide practical guidance to prepare you and your board for opportunities presented by climate change. You will deepen your understanding of the strategic implications of climate change  in order to engage with your executive teams on transition plans and net zero targets to embed climate strategy. 

    Presenters include Zoe Whitton, MD, Head of Impact at Pollination, Ken Dean FAICD, chair of Mission Australia and Wendy Mackay, MD Pollination. Register now for the webinar Connecting Climate Change with Strategy.
