Met Office chairman Robert Napier will address the influential CBI annual conference on Tuesday November 27 outlining where and how businesses can thrive in a changing climate.
In partnership with Met Office Consulting, the CBI Task Force on climate change has identified how businesses will need to adapt to the changing climate - recognising both the risks and opportunities this brings.
Mr Napier said: "Adaptation can reduce the impacts of a changing climate. Given that for the coming two or three decades, we are already committed to many of these impacts, it is crucial that UK businesses prepare for these inevitable changes.
"There are opportunities in many market sectors afforded by the changing climate, which means that those most resilient to global warming will thrive."
