Climate change discourse isn’t all photos of worried polar bears and winsome children. Even amongst those who accept that we’re facing a time of monumental change, one question niggles about the change ahead: what’s it all going to cost? Some say less than the price of a coffee a week, some that reducing emissions will mean considerable costs and a loss of economic competitiveness. What are we to believe? And maybe cost is the wrong way of thinking about how the world of finance should be facing the upheaval ahead. Does systemic change represent as great an opportunity as it does a
challenge? How do you make sure good climate strategy equals good business?
