The Economics of Climate Change

Topic: Our Global Climate Service explores the economic consequences of climate change. Using the recent enhancements to our Global Economic Model we explore three scenarios that look at both the potential physical risks from climate change as well as the potential consequences of transitioning to a low carbon economy.

Please note that we will be holding one webinar each for EMEA, Americas and APAC friendly time zones:

  • EMEA – Wednesday 6th October | 10:00 BST
  • Americas – Wednesday 6th October | 16:00 EDT
  • APAC – Thursday 7th October | 10:00 HKT
