Mind the Heat: Climate Change & Directors' Duties

2 CPD ppintsWednesday, 9 October 2019 from 7:00 am to 9:00 am, Grand Millenium, Auckland

Take your pick: 1.5°, 2° or 3° of climate warming. What is clear is, New Zealand must transition to a climate change-resilient economy. A key governance challenge for all directors is what this means for their business.

The Institute of Directors, in partnership with the Climate Change and Business Conference, present three thought-leading speakers on:

  • Why the Reserve Bank and prudential regulators overseas are concerned about climate change, and why it matters for our financial institutions and economy
  • Why all directors and fund managers should be concerned about climate change, and what they can do about it
  • How to build climate change resilience through governance decisions and reporting
