On November 29, Fondazione Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici (CMCC) and Assolombarda, an associated partner of LOCALISED, will host a joint workshop on evaluating the vulnerability of businesses in the Lombardy region of Italy to climate change and decarbonization pathways.

Assolombarda is an association of companies operating in the Metropolitan City of Milan and in the provinces of Lodi, Monza and Brianza. The representatives from 6 businesses in different sectors of mechatronics, food processing, and transportation will discuss ways in which decarbonization pathways affect their operation. The emphasis will be on identifying questions regarding vulnerability along 7 major dimensions: energy, labour, technology, input, output, supply chain, and finance.

A draft of a survey designed for mass distribution among EU businesses in the next phase of the project will be discussed and the feedback from the participants will help improve the scope and methodology of the survey.
