Products in Peril: Climate Resilience Strategies

October 24, 2017, 4:15 pm-5:15 pm

From decreased cocoa production in West Africa, to reduced cotton production from drought in South Asia, to concerns over coffee yields from fluctuating weather patterns globally, key agricultural commodities are under stress due to climate change. Many companies understand how commodity supply availability impacts their ability to create products. However, many fail to realize how climate resilience can help mitigate risks, help maintain business success, and positively impact local communities. This discussion will take an in-depth look at how leading brands are implementing climate resilience strategies into their key-commodity supply chains.
