Climate change adaptation: consumer response to climate risk

Deloitte Climate & Sustainability Competency Lab

Thursday 13 April 2023 | h 11.00 to 12.30 | Open lesson via Zoom

The lecture will discuss how energy has shaped the societies that today face the need to rethink their relationship with energy, in the race towards net zero emissions.

Starting from a new environmental paradox that is silently emerging, the looming cooling crunch, the talk will introduce the notion of adaptation to climate change. It will show how the relevance and significance of energy use for adaptation needs to be taken into account for planning an effective decarbonization pathway.
