Responding to climate change and the transition to a low carbon economy is likely the greatest challenge of our generation. The changing climate and public policies to deal with this permeate almost every strategic investment and marketing decision that we make.
Climate change has many dimensions - physical, social, technological, macro and micro economic, fiscal, regulatory, marketing, research and development. It impacts on many facets of life – health, transport, infrastructure, energy, industry, trade, agriculture, resources, government and business.
Understanding these and their cross-sectoral impact is the role of leaders in progressive organisations.
Companies prepared for a low-carbon future are more likely to be able to manage climate change risks, such as rising energy prices, competition for resources, regulated carbon markets as well as changing customer preferences, supply chain demands and stakeholder expectations.
Managing risk is just one part of dealing with a changing climate. Strategic companies visualising a low-carbon future can also plan and prioritise investment in research and development, marketing strategies for existing and new customers and management systems for compliance with emerging laws.
Banarra can help you visualise and plan for your company’s future competitiveness and prosperity in a low-carbon future and changing climate. We have extensive experience working strategically with organisations, their customers, stakeholders and supply chain across all areas of sustainability in an integrated way. We work closely with our clients to help them understand both how climate change will impact their business and how their business can continue to thrive in a low-carbon future. We look beyond current regulatory indecision to assist organisations in responding strategically to changes in technology, markets, purchasing decisions and stakeholder views.
