Climate Change: The Regulatory & Practical Implications for Global Business

by Tjeerd Hendel-Blackford 27 Oct. 2015

Climate change is once more at the forefront of people's minds in the run up to the COP21 in Paris later this year. Yet, our changing climate has been on the minds of policy and law-makers for sometime as many political and regulatory measures are already in place to address the consequences thereof. These measures vary greatly in approach across the world.We at Enhesa have been monitoring and analyzing regulations around air emissions, ODS, energy efficiency of buildings, emissions trading schemes, carbon taxes and many other climate-related policy and regulatory developments for global companies for over 25 years. It is one of the areas that we have consistently seen high levels of regulatory activity in and across the 230 jurisidictions that we cover.

In the run up to COP21, we wanted to bring this regulatory knowledge into context by also looking at the practical and economical implications that our changing climate will pose to global industry. Climate change is affecting business' bottom line globally. Big business recognizes the need to both adapt to become resilient to today's weather and tomorrow's climate and plan for opportunities, as well as to reduce carbon emissions through mitigation.

For this reason, Enhesa, in partnership with Ecofys(a leading consultancy in renewable energy, energy & carbon efficiency, energy systems & markets, and energy & climate policy) will be co-hosting a complimentary webinar on the 5th and 10th of November, that will highlight recent regulatory developments and policy challenges worldwide, focus on how climate change impacts are already affecting big business and the associated costs, as well as the opportunities, changing policy frameworks and potential legal liabilities of not taking climate actions.
