From Risk to Opportunity: Climate Transitions and Tropical Commodities

Orbitas will host a high-level event on policy, risk, and finance related to tropical agricultural commodities and how these markets will be affected by climate transitions.

Together with ministers and senior officials from the UK and German governments, Orbitas will lead a high-level panel alongside private sector leaders to discuss the risks and opportunities climate transitions present to the tropical commodities sector. ​Orbitas will launch its flagship report Agriculture in the Age of Climate Transitions: Stranded Assets, Less Land, New Costs, New Opportunities which provides the world’s first climate transition scenario analysis for tropical agriculture.

Orbitas is a ground-breaking initiative established to quantify the risks caused by responses to climate change in the tropical agriculture sector.

Speakers Include:

  • Lord Martin Callanan UK Minister for Climate Change and Corporate Responsibility
  • Karsten Sach, Director General, Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety
  • Mark Kenber, Orbitas
  • More Ministerial and private-sector leaders to be announced

Join Orbitas on December 7th as they launch our analysis of the impacts of climate responses on the tropical soft commodity sector. Our research shows how macroeconomic transitions flow down to individual companies. Orbitas finds that companies face three major risks – stranded assets, growth constraints, and GHG emissions costs. However, if firms get ahead of climate transitions and act sustainably then there are substantial financial opportunities. The reports will also highlight recommendations for producers, capital providers and governments on how they can support the transition to sustainable and profitable deforestation-free commodity production. Using a cutting-edge methodology for translating climate transitions into financial risk metrics, Orbitas has already found that material transition risks exist and that the financial sector is largely unaware of them.
