Learn how climate risks are playing out in Australia, what they mean and how to prioritise them in your organisation.

The 2022 Global Risks Report (GRR) is an annual insight into global risks, published by the World Economic Forum in collaboration with Marsh McLennan, and this year, it highlights the disruptive implications of major risks, including a growing focus on climate action, a more complex cyber threat landscape, and the impact of accelerated space activity that may reshape our world in 2022 and over the next decade.

In this Boardroom Briefing, Marsh examines the GRR’s findings and provides a deep dive into the local context, covering the main environmental concerns that are dominating the thinking of Australia’s business leaders in 2022. 

In this briefing, we outline the risks and opportunities Australian businesses face in relation to climate in the face of a disorderly transition to net zero. We consider the impacts this will have on businesses and outline the steps your organisation needs to take to be climate resilient.
