Adaptation to Climate Change - Challenges and Opportunities (In collaboration with JCCM)
Centre Stage 2
Presented by our partner
The latest IPCC report is clear: ongoing climate change is impacting all spheres of activity in our societies. It is no longer time for prevention but for action in all sectors. Whether they are starting a business or growing their business, entrepreneurs can no longer ignore this reality, to which they must adapt. To limit the carbon footprint of their business model and offer services relevant to today's society, the challenges are numerous and the solutions surprising. Several incubators have made this their area of specialisation. Two of them, 2 Degrés and Coop Carbone, take us on a journey of discovery of these famous impact entrepreneurs, highlighting their failures and their successes in adapting to the era of climate change. Panel in collaboration with the Jeune Chambre de Commerce de Montréal.
