Climate change is complicated. But in this series, Willis Towers Watson’s thought leaders unpack some of the big issues that the world is facing in the critical Climate Decade ahead.

In this special series, our thought leaders share their insights as to what it takes for investors to implement Net Zero targets, how climate strategies must integrate stewardship, how risk quantification methods developed in the insurance industry can be applied to climate and adopted by others in the financial sector, and the importance of culture and mindsets not just datasets in the low carbon transition. You can also hear what our thought leaders have to say on these topics as part of our podcast series, Talking Climate & Resilience.

The series follows on from Willis Towers Watson’s inaugural Climate Risk & Stewardship Summit in May this year, over 3,000 attendees across 3 days explored what the evolving stewardship role of financial institutions as the whole economy transitions to a net-zero and climate resilient future.
