The COVID-19 pandemic has undeniably created massive challenges to companies around the world. Rethinking their roles and purpose in society in the new normal, many companies have been paying more attention to the safety and wellbeing of its employees and helping society respond to crises.

Moreover, global warming will likely accelerate the emergence of new viruses.

In this panel, our industry experts will share what businesses and individuals could do across the value chain to help mitigate the effects of climate change.
