As the UNFCC Conference of the Parties in Glasgow (COP26) approaches its final throes, it is practically impossible to escape climate change in all aspects of professional and private life. In Europe, the topic has clearly moved from niche to mainstream in any discussion, with countless conferences, workshops, seminars, training sessions, and products offered as “green” or “good for the climate”. It is no surprise that climate change is back at the top of the agenda, after having been temporarily replaced by the COVID19 pandemic in 2021, as stated in this year’s Future Risks Report published by AXA at the end of September 2021. It is becoming more and more difficult to cut through the noise down to the real action, even for those dealing with this topic on a daily basis.
