Climate Change and International Business- – Presented by IBN and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)

Climate change is a big issue that can change both your personal life and how you conduct your business.  Reduction of green-house gases is a recognized goal, but what else?  Will you have to change where you obtain your supplies and services?  Will you have to redesign your products to meet new specifications and regulations?  How will you manage the risks resulting from a warming world?  To help you answer these questions, listen to what experts and industry leaders are thinking and doing. The OECD will present its research on global trade and the implications of climate change.  Safran, a leading aerospace and defense supplier, will outline the practical steps it is taking to prepare for the impact of climate change. Logistics Plus, a facilitator of specialized worldwide logistics services particularly green energy products, will describe changes and responses they anticipate in global logistics. The presenters will interact on their perspectives and be open for Q&A.
