Financing climate adaptation and resilience (A&R) is an opportunity for businesses and private investors—not a burden. From Risk to Reward: The Business Imperative to Finance Climate Adaptation and Resilience is a new study published by BCG in collaboration with the Global Resilience Partnership (GRP) and United States Agency for International Development (USAID) that lays out the investment thesis for the private sector to finance climate adaptation and resilience. Our analysis aims to inform industry-wide actions at this critical time. This report details the adaptation and resilience business case, laying out three key opportunities for the private sector to secure value and identifying the specific entry points for finance:
The report closes with a set of actions that different industry participants can take to begin availing themselves of these three opportunities and fostering systemic resilience to help protect the planet and its people.
This report is a key element of BCG’s response to the US government’s President’s Emergency Plan for Adaptation and Resilience (PREPARE) Call to Action to the Private Sector.
