Potential Impacts Arising from Climate Change

Context

Our client is taking a leading role in reducing emissions of carbon dioxide in order to combat climate change. It also recognises that mitigation steps might be insufficient to avoid some potential impact from climate change and that businesses and societies will need to adapt.

Approach

We navigated a vast field of scientific endeavour and mapped the numerous types of impact and the underlying uncertainty behind their prediction. We creatively explored how they might affect our client’s business and the associated threats and opportunities.

Impact

Our study spanned the dynamics of ice melt to changing rainfall patterns to the geography of malaria. Through it, our client was better informed about future climate change scenarios and in a better position to plan how its business should respond.
