James McMahon interviewed by The Resilience Journal

“A CEO has lots to think about, and climate change is not on their forefront. Until it is.”

· TCS in the News

In this November 2018 interview James speaks to the Editor & Publisher of The Resilience Journal, Alex Díaz Eco, about the importance for leaders and industry to put climate risk on their radar.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

Corporations, {McMahon] posits, have been approaching adaptation in ways that fail to scale. “We’re throwing consultants at every single problem, and there aren’t enough experts to go around. This is why we built a software tool to do it. We have to use the power of technology to dramatically increase the speed and reduce the costs with which we can screen our assets. [Our] goal is to refine this technology to where eventually it can become accessible to the developing world [and companies that are] not able to hire an expensive consultant.”

Once you quantify these risks and opportunities, “that [becomes] the universal language that everybody speaks. The conversation shifts, and that mainstreaming becomes much easier. It’s no longer an environmental discussion. It’s simply a business decision.”
