Prof. Aled Jones, from ARU, MEDEAS partner, participated as a panel presenter in the Aldersgate Group on green finance on October 10, 2019, in London. This Aldersgate Group event debated how businesses and investors can improve their understanding of the growing physical and regulatory risks arising from climate change and climate policy and ensure this results in better informed decision making.
Prof. Aled Jones stressed the importance of developing a clear response to hazards, once they have been understood. While physical risks tend to be easy to understand in some sectors such as food, Aled explained it can be much harder to grasp how insurance and government can respond, how they can collaborate and how they will share information.
The event was attended by approximately 60 senior business leaders. More information can be found here.
