WEBINAR – Are You Sure Your Transatlantic Business is Resilient for the Risks of Climate Change?

September 28 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM EDT

Brought to you by EACC Netherlands.

Since the consequences will be experienced sooner than we all believe, please join us for a conversation on climate-related (security) risks with former Commander in Chief of the Dutch Armed Forces Tom Middendorp.

Although COVID19 is a game changer for the economy, it is unfortunately not the only one. More than 50% of the top 10 risks listed in The Global Risk Report of the World Economic Forum are climate related. Hence, business leaders have a responsibility to integrate the impact of climate change, for instance on the supply chain, in their company’s risk assessment and strategy.

This webinar will focus on what could be the foreseeable and unforeseeable climate-related (security) challenges for the transatlantic economies and their businesses as well as how to prepare and/or prevent.

Topics for discussion:

  • What do we see happening?
  • What is it impacting?
  • How to prepare/prevent and which measures do other companies already undertake?


  • Retired Dutch four-star General Tom Middendorp. With his leading military background Tom is by experience an expert on dealing with uncertainties and how to make policies and operations more resilient. Moreover, he is an eminent subject expert as Chairman of the International Military Council on Climate & Security and as fellow associate/advisor to Clingendael Institute and to The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies.
  • Jacques Buith,  Global lead partner for the United Nations at Deloitte and EU Green Deal advisor. [Moderator


  • Plenary fireside chat.
  • Moderated small-group breakout sessions.
  • Plenary feedback session.

This program is exclusively organized for Supervisory and Non-Executive Board Members of international companies active in transatlantic business and invited members of EACC.
