GEO-5 for Business: Impacts of a Changing Environment on the Corporate Sector
  • United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). June 2013
  • GEO-5 for Business is written for business leaders who are responsible for ensuring that risks and opportunities are understood, addressed, and turned into long-term competitive advantage for their companies. The report assesses the operational, market, reputational, and policy implications of environmental trends on ten business sectors: (1) Building and construction; (2) Chemicals; (3) Electric power; (4) Extractives; (5) Finance; (6) Food and beverage; (7) Healthcare; (8) Information and communication technology; (9) Tourism; (10) Transportation. The report describes business risks and opportunities based on information derived from existing science, business, policy, and other literature. It also includes brief real-world examples that illustrate the nature of some of these risks and opportunities. The issues of water availability, water efficiency and water pollution and their implications for the business sector are addressed in different chapters of the report.
