WGB Leaders in Sustainability Speaker Series: Adapting to the Impacts of Climate Change 
The Gateway Center @ Westchester Community College
8 - 10 a.m.
75 Grasslands Road, Valhalla, NY

The impacts of climate change—rising sea level, more frequent and intense heat waves, flooding and drought, and other extreme weather events—are imposing significant costs on companies and communities alike. While companies continue to navigate changing business environments, today they also face changing physical environments. Climate change is affecting business facilities and operations, critical supply and distribution chains, as well as access to power and water. These physical impacts also have a human impact on companies’ employees and customers.

Join us for an informative discussion around the impact of climate change on Westchester and New York State businesses, with an eye toward the future and how we can work together to mitigate risks.
