EP2: The Importance of Consistent Climate Communication

March 22, 2023

As the climate transition accelerates, it’s important for companies to consistently communicate their climate-related financial risks and opportunities. But how do sustainability and risk professionals ensure climate stays high on companies’ agendas amid competing priorities?

In this Climate Compass episode, Host Laura Zizzo chats about why climate needs to be an ongoing discussion for businesses. She speaks with Manifest Climate’s Deputy Editor Daina Goldfinger, who breaks down the top stories that Manifest Climate has been following. Daina talks about the World Economic Forum’s 2023 Global Risks Report, the discovery that oil major ExxonMobil knew of its climate impacts for decades, and a new initiative that commits top global firms to pro-climate lobbying.

Afterward, Laura is joined by special guest Soren Brothers, North America’s first museum climate curator who works at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Canada. Laura and Soren discuss how climate communication relates to action, how museums can change people’s minds with respect to climate change, and how to effectively inform business leaders of climate-related issues.

Climate Compass is a monthly podcast presented by Manifest Climate, the leading Climate Risk Planning solution.
