As stark evidence of climate change mounts, economies rush to adopt alternative energy sources and adapt to resource scarcity.

"Climate change can lead to phenomena like altered precipitation patterns, such as droughts," says Riggs Eckelberry, CEO of OriginClear, a clean water innovation hub. "This then leads to water scarcity as we've seen in places like Lake Mead, which is vital to the livelihoods of many. Likewise, floods can also pollute our water supply and cause similar issues. These then impact agriculture and our food supply – it's a domino effect."
Climate change poses huge risks for both people and companies. But it also provides opportunities for businesses working to solve problems such as water and food scarcity, create renewable energy, and even remove planet-warming gases from the atmosphere.
