Climate War Games

Business wargames are a well-established tools to help organizations think through risks and opportunities in a context of high uncertainty. Four Twenty Seven has developed a first-of-its-kind Climate Wargame to help companies grasp the complexity of decision-making under uncertainty and try their hand at building a portfolio of adaptation measures to mitigate their short term and long term risk.

We offer Climate Wargame as a learning tool in public workshops with a participants from a broad range of organizations and background, or as a customized tools with scenarios and risk profiles reflecting our clients’ key activities and value chain.

Objectives: The objective of this workshop is to equip participants with tools and techniques to engage their organization on the issue of climate change as a business risk and opportunity. Through the use of climate wargaming and interactive exercises, participants will think through and use a variety of tools to identify risk and opportunities related to climate change. Wargaming offers the opportunity for participants to “play” strategy games designed to simulate situations in which companies think through how best to mitigate and address the impact of climate change on their business operations. Through these exercises, participants will develop a strategy to communicate critical issues to key stakeholders in their organization – executive leadership, peers, and operational staff, and identify how to tie climate adaptation efforts to KPIs.

Who should attend: The workshop is designed for executives, sustainability and risk professionals, as well as managers with responsibility for aspects of the corporate value chain vulnerable to climate change impacts (i.e. supply chain, operations, facilities etc.)
Climate Wargame can be used as an awareness-raising tool for company executives, as a coalition-building tool with mid-level managers, and as an external stakeholder engagement tool to assess risks and vulnerabilities in a community.
