A new study by the European Investment Bank (EIB) shows that firms in the Netherlands have few concerns about the long-term effects of climate change. The firms in question say that the main reason for this is that in the recent past they have already invested significantly in climate adaptation or mitigation measures. While firms often state that they expect to see major changes in the climate system, they seem to still lag behind in devising a strategy to deal with them. However, the Netherlands is at the head of the pack in terms of climate investments made so far, according to the EIB’s 2020 Investment Survey.
