The business community general, or at least larger companies, are being urged to carry out in-depth scenario planning to identify and respond to climate risks. The Climate Web is structured to support scenario planning and a variety of other business decision-making contexts.


For example, the Climate Web can help you:

  • Set the stage internally for climate change scenario planning
  • Justify why companies should want to take advantage of scenario planning
  • Understand why companies might not have come around to the idea of climate change scenario planning
  • Identify the many choices and options associated with undertaking climate change scenario planning
  • Launch a “conventional” scenario planning process that might be considered business-confidential
  • Launching a TCFD scenario planning process specifically intended for public consumption
  • Assess what comes next after completing a scenario planning exercise

These are the kinds of topics the Climate Web, based on 20,000 hours of knowledge curation, can help you explore. This Lite Roadmap organizes some of the resources available to you.

Key Index Entries include:

Key Topical Headings for books, reports, and journal articles:

Key Topical Headings for news and opinion:

Key Topical Headings for extracted materials:

Key Topical Headings for websites, experts, and more:

Key Topical Headings for videos:

NOTE: Accessing the Climate Web via Roadmap hyperlinks can be a bit disconcerting if you’re not familiar with TheBrain software’s basic functionality, which you can explore via the Basic Navigation link at right. If you do explore some of the links, please remember that Open Access to the Climate Web (via the cloud) is both much slower and less powerful than Premium Access to the Climate Web (which allows you to download the Climate Web to your computer AND take advantage of TheBrain’s superior desktop and mobile softwares).

To clearly see the differences between a Lite Topical Roadmap and a Premium Topical Roadmap, you can take a look at both versions of the Under-Estimating Climate Risks Roadmap:

The Premium Scenario Planning Roadmap digs much deeper into the topics already flagged at the top of this page, among others. Representing thousands of hours of research and knowledge curation, the Premium Roadmap links together together explanatory materials, topical headings, individual reports, news stories, videos, and websites, curated topical dashboards for exploring key topics, and even individual ideas and graphics the Climatographers have extracted from a wide range of key sources. The Premium Scenario Planning Roadmap, as noted above, walks you through:

  • Setting the stage internally for climate change scenario planning
  • Justifying why your company should engage in climate scenario planning
  • Understanding why companies might not have come around to the idea
  • The many choices and options associated with climate change scenario planning
  • Launching a “conventional” scenario planning process
  • Launching a TCFD scenario planning process specifically intended for public consumption
  • Assessing what comes next after completing a scenario planning exercise

Other Roadmaps

You can review the Lite versions of more than 20 Topical Roadmaps, and access their respective Premium Roadmaps, through this Climate Site. We welcome your feedback on other Roadmaps you’d like to see.

To clearly see the differences between a Lite Topical Roadmap and a Premium Topical Roadmap, you can take a look at both versions of the Under-Estimating Climate Risks Roadmap:

Climate Assumptions Audit

Business decision-makers are expected to incorporate climate risks and opportunities into their planning and decision-making. But these are relatively new topics for many decision-makers, and all kinds of underlying assumptions are in play when it comes to:

  • Climate change itself
  • The business materiality of climate risks and opportunities
  • The economics of climate change and climate change mitigation
  • The changing probabilities of extreme events and business disruptions
  • The timing of potential climate change and climate policy tipping points
  • The likely evolution of climate policies and measures
  • How climate risks will play out at the sectoral level

There are too many potential assumptions for a fixed Roadmap, but the Climate Web is structured to make it possible to re-visit and potentially challenge all kinds of climate assumptions. Learn more at this dedicated Climate Site.

Note: This Climate Site has been extracted from the Climate Web to make the material contained here easier to access. That said, this Climate Site represents just the smallest sliver of what you can do with the Climate Web. You can learn more through the links present to right of the website page, and:
