Climate Risk: Risks and Opportunities to a Low Carbon Economy

Next Course Date: 02 November 2021



Course Summary

This GHG training course in Singapore aims to provide participants with knowledge of the risks and opportunities associated with the transition of the global economy to a low carbon economy. One of the key drivers of this transition is climate change, and global policy efforts to minimise the impacts of climate change - led by international negotiations and the Paris Agreement. This global policy framework is used by nations then to develop national climate change policy. In addition to regulatory risks and opportunities, there are a number of interested stakeholders who are increasingly requesting information from businesses about their exposure to climate risk.


Risks such as social license, access to credit and equity, market-related risks and technology risks are also explored in this course. 2018 has been designated the Year of Climate Action by the Singaporean Government, and regulation in the form of a carbon tax is in the process of being implemented - as such, the local context of climate change action will be explained.


Course Objective

The objective of the GHG training course in Singapore is to provide participants with a base knowledge of the climate change related issues that may affect all businesses in the future.
