Details
On September 6th 2018, prior to the opening of the FEB academic year, a more in-depth discussion will take place about the consequences of climate change for business and economics. In a closed session, with limited seats, we will explore the emerging agenda together with Marcel Beukeboom (Climate envoy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands) and Matthijs Bierman (Managing Director Triodos Bank Nederland).

The consequences of climate change will branch out in a variety of directions. It ranges from acute and chronic threats to our physical environment, changing costs structures, stranded assets, reputational effects, new consumer behavior, changing markets and new business opportunities. The Paris agreements of 2015 and the recent Dutch climate accord will have consequences for our FEB research and teaching.
