Adaptation to climate change

Time 14 Jul 2010 10:30-12:00
Venue Jubilee Room, House of Commons

Adaptation, along with mitigation, is an essential part of addressing the challenges and opportunities associated with climate change. The links between what we do to adapt to climate change and mitigation against it, are also important; what is required is an overall response which encompasses the two and secures a successful transition to a low-carbon society. Our guest speakers on this occasion were Lord Krebs, Chair of the Adaptation Sub-Committee of the Committee on Climate Change; Markus Herz, KPMG’s Environment Manager; and Steven Smith, the Corporate Responsibility Manager of Hallmark Cards. Hallmark Cards and KPMG are two members of the Group whose firms have won 2010 Big Tick Awards for Environmental Leadership.
