    Chief Resilience Officers (CRO) have a critical role to play in helping their organisations’ prepare for and adapt to the effects of climate change. There is a myriad of climate reporting and risk analysis going on, but this is often decoupled from resilience responses. Integrating the CRO into the reporting process presents an opportunity for organisations to become more resilient today but more importantly, prepare for a more resilient future.
    In this discussion, we explore how the role of the CRO can help to cohere companies’ disclosures to aid response planning and risk management activities for existing risks, as well as horizon scanning for emerging risks.

    A Debate Examining Standards in Resilience

    This house believes resilience standards are not up to standard 

    • Standards codify good practice and provide a common language and expectation 
    • To this extant they can only reflect current maturity and convergence on the subject 
    • Nevertheless, there is now increased convergence and the revised BS 65000 Code of Practice is a significant step forwards in the right direction   
    • Standards are a compensation for not wanting to do something they promote mediocrity they are poorly authored
