About this Event

How will businesses mitigate the impact of climate change on the value chain

The TIC Council is conducting an extensive risk mitigation survey together with Longitude, an FT company. The survey is aimed at providing a better understanding of the evolving landscape for climate change risk management, and specifically how businesses are planning to mitigate the impact of climate change on the value chain. The survey will be conducted in China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Sweden, UK and USA across various industries, ranging from automotive and natural resources to financial services and agriculture.

The survey findings will be presented by Michael Fübi, CEO of TÜV Rheinland and President of the TIC Council, at the TIC Council launch event on June 18 (International Media Partner - Financial Times). The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion entitled: “Climate Impact – Preparing for Change” which will bring together senior opinion leaders from European Institutions, industry and civil society. This event will explore the steps needed to mitigate risks and prepare the transition to a low-carbon future.

The TIC Council General Assembly will follow on June 19 for TIC Council members only.

The TIC Council brings together a total of approximately 90-member companies and organizations active in more than 160 countries, spanning every continent, speaking with one voice worldwide. The TIC industry represents around a million employees across the world with annual sales of approximately USD 200 billion.
