Thought Leadership Lecture: The Challenge of Climate Change

A lecture on the implications on climate change faced by financial institutions will take place at Staple Inn Hall this month. Starting at 3.30pm on Tuesday 3rd July the event will finish at 6.30pm with a chance for guests to ask questions to speaker Professor Sir Brian Hoskins.

Climate change due to human activities is a challenge to scientists, engineers, industry, the financial sector, policy makers and society in general. A discussion will be given of the approach by the UK Climate Change Committee and the implications of the acceptance of that advice.

Sir Brian Hoskins is Director of the Grantham Institute for Climate Change at Imperial College and Professor of Meteorology at the University of Reading. He is currently on the Board of the Met Office and chairs its Scientific Advisory Committee, and he is a member of the UK Committee on Climate Change.
