Abstract

Russian energy companies are unprepared for a climate-changed future in the Arctic. Their lack of preparation leads to unsustainable business practices that are not economically viable. This project gives energy companies a glance ahead at what their unsustainable business practices will lead to. In addition, the project explores existing adaptation solutions to the worst climate change impacts, as well as provides a framework for energy companies to follow to develop their own adaptations. We believe that giving companies a glance ahead at what their unsustainable business practices will result in will increase their awareness of their activities and encourage them to find adaptation solutions.
