The impacts of COVID and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have sent shockwaves through international supply chains, and across sectors. As similar “cascading” risks are expected to result from climate change – the event focuses on what these risks are, and how Swedish and European actors can build resilience.

Discussion points can include:

  • Examples of how extreme weather events abroad have disrupted Swedish supply chains.
  • Comments on how the private sector is identifying and managing climate risks in supply chains.
  • Views on how the changing geopolitics of trade might affect the resilience of Swedish industry.
  • Thoughts on how Swedish business could or should work with Swedish government and EU to build resilience to future climate shocks.
