The UN sustainable development goals for 2030 define 17 areas relating to climate and the environment, as well as economic and social affairs, where there is still global scope for improvement. Reaching the sustainable development goals requires business to take an active role.
Climate change has negative effects on all aspects of society, including the business sector. The challenges posed by climate change entail physical risk as well as transitional risk relating to regulatory, tax, financial and technological countermeasures.
