Climate Change: Implications for Business

10 October, 6.45pm | Ely Cathedral

Our planet's temperature is set to rise by at least 1.5°C by 2050 presenting significant risks to business and industry. The impacts are wide ranging and include extreme damage to infrastructure and industrial capital assets as well as reduced accessibility of natural resources necessary for food production. In an open forum under Ely Cathedral's Octagon tower, we will look at the measures available to help businesses in our Fenland adapt to the impacts of climate change.

The evening starts with a drinks reception with canapés produced by 68 Market Street. Admission is free.
