Climate Risk and Opportunity for Business

Combining both online and face-to-face learning, this course draws on thought leadership from The University of Queensland, Australian National University, and Oxford University to explore the impact of climate change on business and society. From evaluating risks and opportunities for your organisation to developing a climate risk management plan to minimise risk exposure, you’ll benefit from a comprehensive and forward-thinking approach.

Begin learning via a series of online modules that can be accessed on-demand. Then, during the two half-day face-to-face workshops, you’ll complete a scenario planning exercise and design a strategic climate action initiative for your organisation using an optimised Business Model Canvas. This initiative is something you can take back to your organisation to implement and expand on after completing the course.
