Building on EBC’s 2023 Fall Sustainability 101 Series, the EBC Climate Change and Air & Ascending Professionals Committees bring you “ESG 201,” a three-part series that will look at the current state of the expanding and global-critical discipline of the Environmental, Social and Governance framework. ESG 201 will focus on the exploration of the regulations, risks and opportunities within corporate ESG and sustainability.

Part 2: Tools to Understand Physical Risk and Transition Risk in a Changing Climate

This second session of the ESG 201 series will explore how businesses, communities, and other organizations can use climate risk scenario analysis to consider challenges and opportunities posed by the physical risks of a changing climate and risks to their operations from the transition from fossil fuels. You will see a demonstration of the En-ROADS advanced global climate risk and impact tool which was developed by the MIT Sloan School of Management and Climate Interactive for international policy and negotiation support.

You will also have a virtual tour of Massachusetts’s ResilientMass on-line repository, led by the Commonwealth’s new Office of Climate Science. ResilientMass was created as the Commonwealth’s central source for climate change maps, data and interactive applications, with the latest statewide climate data and projections.

Join us for this informative presentation and discussion of both transition risk and physical risk as evaluated through these two effective resources.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this series (5.0 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the final webinar in this series.
