Business and climate change risk: a regional time series analysis


  • Peter Romilly

    (University of Abertay Dundee, Dundee, Scotland)


International business activity has to adapt to a number of new challenges, including higher temperatures and flood risks. The adaptation process will depend partly on the development of new forms of risk analysis for decision-making. This paper identifies statistically significant differences in regional temperature risk profiles, and develops climate change risk rankings for 11 regions of the globe. The methodology is based on a univariate time series analysis of regional mean temperatures, and takes into account the extent to which extreme temperature events cluster together, an important factor in weather-related risk analysis. The implications of the empirical results are discussed, with particular reference to the insurance and reinsurance markets. Journal of International Business Studies (2007) 38, 474–480. doi:10.1057/palgrave.jibs.8400266
