ADAPTATION BUSINESS PIONEERS
Climate change has a potential to widely affect our business activities. Business operations could be directly hit hard by natural disasters such as flood or poor harvest due to extreme weather events. Climate change overseas would disturb international supply chains or production sites, resulting in indirect impacts on the national economy.
"Business for adaptation" is an approach in which business communities consider climate change as an economic opportunity to enhance the market by developing and providing new products or services that could support people's adaptation actions to climate change.
DISCLOSURES AND SDGs
Corporate Information Disclosure on Climate Change
There is increasing demand by investors and other stakeholders for corporate information disclosure on climate change. Several international disclosure frameworks have been developed, including CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) and TCFD (Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures). These two are introduced in this section.
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are international development goals adopted by the United Nations. SDG are included in this section because private sector is expected to play a significant role in their achievement.
