Adapting to climate change with Bob Oliver, executive director, Pollution Probe

How will your organization adapt to climate change? Warmer temperatures, and more frequent and violent storms are all climatic events that could impact your operations, so best to prepare and plan today, says Bob Oliver, executive director of Pollution Probe.

Climate change adaptation can be defined as making adjustments in planning and business decisions because of expected changes in weather patterns and climate. Adaptation is different from “mitigation,” which relates to human activities that seek to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that are contributing to climate change.

Where there is challenge, there is also opportunity. “Adaption to climate change is all about risk management,” says Oliver in this exclusive interview with RBC.

“Adaptation is something that every business needs to be thinking about. Climate change is real. It’s happening now. And business needs to start factoring the implications of operating in a new climate paradigm into the planning process.” — Bob Oliver, executive director of Pollution Probe
