“Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis” – the newest report from the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – offers the most detailed assessment of climate science ever. The 2,500 pages of scientific consensus make clear that human influence on the changing climate is more certain than ever.
Apart from the broad challenges for mankind, the impacts of climate change – rising temperatures, changes in rainfall patterns, rising sea levels, disappearing glaciers, and acidifying seawater – pose unforeseen risks for business and direct effects on many industrial sectors.
To help businesses better understand the implications of climate change, the University of Cambridge Judge Business School and the Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership, with support from the European Climate Foundation, have produced a digestible 20-page summary of the IPCC report.
“A Summary of Findings from the UN’s Latest Climate Review: Actions, Trends and Implications for Business” is the second report in the Cambridge/ECF series. For more information on this project, email AR5@europeanclimate.org.
