Climate change adaptation

There are two responses to climate change:

  • mitigation - reducing our emissions
  • adaptation – managing the risks of what might happen when the climate changes.

We are strongly committed to both types of action. However, this discussion focuses on our adaptation response.

While we acknowledge that mitigation is necessary to limit the amount of change we might see in our climate, we also acknowledge that there is change already locked into our systems – no matter what we do.

Find out what we've achieved so far, and what we hope to achieve in the future.
