There is conclusive evidence that the impacts of climate change will affect our businesses, supply chains and communities in the West Midlands. This includes impacts not limited to flooding, overheating, storm damage and increasing frequency and magnitude of extreme weather events. Last year’s UK Climate Change Risk Assessment outlined the risks to businesses as follows:

  • Risks to business sites from flooding.
  • Risks to businesses from the impacts on water availability and quality.
  • Risks to finance, investment and insurance including access to capital for businesses.
  • Risks to business from reduced employee productivity due to infrastructure disruption and higher temperatures in working environments
  • Risks to business from disruption to supply chains and distribution networks.
  • Potential opportunities for business from changes in demand for goods and services.

It can, however, be overwhelming to know how businesses can help themselves to become more resilient to these impacts and where to start when embarking on adaptation measures. This online workshop will begin to explore these issues and give advice on how to help business support organisations (LEPs, Growth Hubs, Chambers of Commerce and so on) can provide support to businesses in their localities with these issues.

This workshop is for business support organisations such as those outlined above. There are also workshops taking place for businesses themselves which are outlined below.
