As part of the Third UK Climate Change Risk Assessment the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the London School of Economics in collaboration with the UK Committee on Climate Change are investigating climate risks to businesses and industry in the UK. This work will inform the UK Government’s climate change adaptation planning under the Climate Change Act. The research explores the direct and indirect impacts of climate change on businesses operating in the UK. Activities to reduce emissions (climate change mitigation) are not considered. As part of this process we are conducting a survey of businesses with operations in the UK, regardless of size or sector.  We are inviting businesses in the UK to participate in this survey via the link below, which will be open untill 20th January 2020:

Climate Risk Survey for Businesses operating in the UK

The survey will take between 10-15 minutes and all responses will be anonymized – personal or company details will not be linked to any of the responses nor used in any reports or publications resulting from the study.
