BCCT, in collaboration with AustCham, EABC and GTCC, cordially invites you to BCCT Multi-Chambers Breakfast Briefing on Redefining Sustainable Business and Building Climate Resilience in Thailand on Wednesday 28 February at The Westin Grande Sukhumvit Bangkok.
leading threats to our global economy, according to the 2018 World Economic Forum, are extreme weather events, natural disasters, and the failure to mitigate and adapt to climate change. In Thailand, the 2011 floods cost over 1.4 trillion baht (45 billion USD) in damages and affected 240,000 small businesses. Economic losses from the 2015-2016 drought amounted to nearly 106.6 billion baht (3.4 billion USD). And experts are estimating larger than average amounts of precipitation in Thailand this year.
The role of business in addressing climate change has never been more important than it is today. Companies are becoming increasingly aware of such issues, but it requires more than hardening infrastructure to combat the extreme weather. Navigating the realities of climate change requires a new approach to business leadership.
Aron Cramer will speak to redefining sustainable business in a world of rapid change. Corporate leadership will require re-imagining business strategies, starting with redefining governance structures to catalyzing systemic progress and strengthening the relationship between commercial success and resilient communities.
Date: Wednesday 28th February
Time: 7.30 - 9.00 am
