Climate change is affecting our planet right now, disrupting national economies and people’s lives. The costs are borne by people, communities, companies and countries on every continent

Some key findings

  • Around one in four companies says the value chain has been impacted by climate change. Half of the companies foresee impacts within the next five years.
  • Laws and regulations are the main drivers behind climate change adaptation actions, followed by needs/requests from customers.
  • 40% of respondents are currently implementing or in the process of planning climate change adaptation or resilience actions. Another 25% say they plan to assess relevant actions within the next three years.
  • Half of the companies expect a return on climate-related investments in five years' time.
  • One in two companies has already conducted, or will execute, a climate change risk/vulnerability assessment in the next three years.
