Businesses are Worried, but Leaders from Path to Positive Communities have Solutions.

By path2positive

Yesterday’s post focused on five key recommendations from community leaders that came out of the MomentUs 2015 Climate Leadership Summit. The summary report outlined what community leaders collectively agreed were the most important elements of empowering leaders to actualize climate solutions: offering good pay, green jobs; communicating that solutions = stability, prosperity; empowering leader to leader support; influencing citizens; listening, collaborating, inspiring.

In a report just released by Travelers, business leaders expressed their greatest worries moving forward. Among these concerns are the frequency and damage caused by extreme weather events, worker income, and the economy. It is no coincidence that many of the business risks can be alleviated through the implementation of the recommendations made in the Climate Leadership Summit report.

Worries about potential risks by business leaders can be abated through action at the local level. Community and municipal leaders are tasked with creating well-paying, stable, green collar jobs. Additionally, developing a climate solution action plan can boost local economies, providing sustainability and economic prosperity for the region. Finally, addressing climate solutions and investing in climate-smart infrastructure will help reduce the costs and damages associated with a changing climate. The recommendations developed and detailed by leaders at the 2015 MomentUs Summit empower local leaders to address climate solutions, and may help alleviate some important business concerns.
