” The future will be green, or not at all. ” – Jonathan Porritt, Environmentalist and Author

As the world moves into an unpredictable era of consequences, Climate change has rapidly morphed into climate crisis. We are already amid the 6th mass extinction with the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere surpassing 410 parts per million in 2019. ​

Corporates, just like human civilization at large, will be severely impacted by extreme weather conditions such as floods, heat waves and erratic rainfall. These extreme events may lead to the breakdown of industrial supply chain, food chain, communication networks as they present an enhanced risk to human life. Business must respond by taking a methodical approach to coping with the Climate Crisis. ​

​Acknowledging climate crisis as a reality, and recognising the need to adapt, requires bold decisions by business. Product design, business operations and business models need to embrace a greener footprint. This potentially disruptive organizational change, with far reaching consequences, could only be led by the Human Resources – because it requires change not just in the business models and priorities but also at a more basic level of how people think, feel and behave at work.

Strengthscape’s Humans & Resources Convention brings focus to the role of Human Resources in understanding, planning and adapting to the Climate Crisis from both the organizational and societal perspective. ​The convention will bring together senior HR Professionals, Corporate Leaders and Scientists in sharing best practices in Human Resources and in defining the expanding role of HR in responding to Climate Crisis. ​
