  • Around nine in every ten firms have suffered climate impacts in the past three years.
  • While risks abound, executives see greater opportunity. 
  • Much work is already underway in terms of developing relevant new products and services.
  • Emerging markets are viewed as the primary business growth opportunity, especially within Asia.
  • Limited awareness about adaptation and a shortage of skills are the main obstacles hindering further development.
