How does climate change impact trade?



Earthquakes, floods, cyclones, etc., the impacts of climate change are being felt everywhere, by everyone. Basically, its impact is not only physical and economic but also has profoundly political and social dimensions. There is an urgent need to act.

In this webinar, we have asked risk management experts and a business leader, who has made the energy transition part of their strategy, to share their views and insights on how climate change is impacting trade.

Here is the webinar programme (from 1.30 p.m. to 2.30 p.m. CET):

> While climate risks are still underestimated in government policies and by corporates worldwide, they continue to grow rapidly and impact economies globally, albeit with great regional and country discrepancies. Extreme weather events, food insecurity, reduced access to water, land conflicts and mass migrations: climate-related risk factors have become obvious vectors for country and sector risks.
by Raphaël Cecchi & Jolyn Debuysscher, Country and Sector Risk Analysts at Credendo

> The Credendo Green Package celebrates a successful first year
by Nabil Jijakli, Deputy CEO of Credendo

> Client testimonial
by Olivier Dufrasne, President of Ecosteryl

> Q&A session

The webinar will be moderated by journalist Björn Crul.
