Adapting to Climate Change: A Guide for Businesses in Scotland
Guidance for the Scottish private sector on what risks and opportunities climate change may pose.
This guidance for the private sector gives an overview of what risk and opportunities climate change may pose for Scottish businesses; explains how to build the adaptive capacity to deal with these risks and provides a signpost to the various existing tools and resources that are available. Adaptation Scotland intends to work with various sectors within business and industry to develop sector specific guidance and training modules which will help businesses to identify risks and opportunities from climate change and develop adaptation strategies to deal with these. Adaptation Scotland has a Private Sector Officer, whose role is to liaise and advise the private sector on the issue of climate change adaptation. Please email Lorraine FitzGerald (Lorraine@sniffer.org.uk for further details). Adaptation Scotland is also working with a range of business-facing organisations to integrate climate change adaptation more fully into everyday business operations and policies.
