Haley & Aldrich’s climate practice: from vulnerability assessments to strategic planning

Published in:
Environmental Business Journal, Volume XXVIII, Number 7/8, 2015

Synopsis:
Haley & Aldrich’s climate-related business is growing quickly, especially on the resilience and adaptation side. In 2014, the firm conducted interviews with leaders of 30 major organizations, many of them clients. According to Karin Holland, senior sustainability specialist, while “most organizations were tracking their greenhouse gas emissions and taking on climate change mitigation projects, they were less sure as to where to go with climate change adaptation.” For many of the firm’s clients, a key vulnerability in this area is supply chain management. Even if the company itself is not greatly impacted directly, they might be relying on suppliers from areas of the world at greater risk.” This understanding has led Haley & Aldrich to expand its Operations Risk and Compliance Practice with a new practice leader and a four-member Product Stewardship team. This team will help clients in the private sector “ensure business continuity, protect the brand, and reduce total cost of operations.”
