Your Climate Risk MBA

Climate change is a “wicked problem” for business and society. A low carbon transition is underway, but it’s not happening fast enough to prevent the earth's temperature from rising substantially in coming decades. The result will be a petri dish of business risks and opportunities. Physical impact risks, brand risks, regulatory and policy risks, liability risks, market transition risks, and systemic economic risks will become more material to more elements of the business community as climate change advances. The result is unparalleled business uncertainty and decision-making challenges. Business decision-makers need far more actionable climate knowledge than they ever needed before.

Thanks for publishing Your Climate Risk MBA. It's fantastic, and I've been thinking about the content constantly over the last few weeks. I've been aware of (and in some cases have actively worked on) climate change issues for over 30 years, and your course truly opened my eyes to the power of knowledge management.

Mark Trexler's Climate Risk MBA course covers all the essential elements for understanding climate change and how climate uncertainty is at the core of sustainable business decisions. His clearly stated explanations and insights cut through the confusion that engulfs most climate-risk considerations. From my perspective, Trexler’s work, as supplemented by the ClimateWeb resources, offers the most balanced and comprehensive basis for risk assessment and risk management available.

Mark Trexler is a knowledgeable and clear-thinking instructor on this issue, and there's no better resource out there for climate information than his Climate Web. This is an incredible perspective and value for the investment of time and money.

Are Carbon Offsets Helping Tackle Climate Change?

Carbon offsets are a popular climate change mitigation options, but they are also frequently criticized. This course delivers an in-depth understanding of the history and evolution of carbon offsets, the challenges posed by “commoditizing” emissions reductions and carbon removals as offsets, where offset markets are headed next, how they can be improved, and whether you should buy them.

why take this course

Leverage Our Knowledge

The Climatographers, creators of the Climate Web, worked on the first carbon offset 35 years ago and have been involved with carbon offset markets ever since. They are widely regarded as experts on carbon offsets, the environmental integrity of carbon offsets, and scoring of carbon offsets. Take this course to leverage our decades of carbon offsets experience.


What Students Say

The course was excellent: well-organized, intelligent, clear, and informed by Dr. Trexler's years of experience. I highly recommend it.

charles wilson

Dr. Trexler‘s comprehensive knowledge allows him to simplify a fairly muddy discussion. This is a huge plus for viewers. This is clearly an educational course, not a partisan viewpoint. Well done!

jeffrey atkin

A comprehensive, well-structured, and clear course on carbon offsets. Surely a course to revisit, as it is packed with valuable information and charts. Don't miss it!

martina V.

This was a very insightful course. It is great to get first hand insights from Dr. Trexler and to learn more about Climate Web. The course covers a lot of key topics, the no-nonsense overview of Permanence, Leakage and Additionality in particular was very useful.

Personal Knowledge Management Using TheBrain Software

The Climate Web is built with a powerful personal knowledge management (PKM) software called TheBrain™. PKM is probably the most important skillset in today's world that you’ve never been exposed to in school or professionally. We all practice PKM at some level, but this course shows you how you can advance your personal and professional goals with personal knowledge management using TheBrain software.

why take this course

Be Better Organized

Most of us are deluged by information that is relevant to us today, or might be relevant to us in the future. But we have no way of easily organizing and retaining that information, and usually quickly forget it. A “digital brain” can solve this problem. This course shows you a wide variety of ways that people are using TheBrain software to create fit-for-purpose “second brains," including the Climate Web and Your Climate Change Search Engine.


What Students Say

This course is an excellent intro to PKM (Personal Knowledge Management) with TheBrain software. I've been using the pro-version of TheBrain for many years, but there is one feature I missed, and that's using pre-set search terms. That alone made this course worthwhile for me (and was the reason for buying the course). Thanks, Mark, for pointing that out!

erich a.

This course isn't (and doesn't pretend to be) a how-to on using The Brain software. Instead, it provides a good intro to the capabilities of The Brain and the various ways you can put it to use, within the broader context of knowledge management.

Systemic Risks: the New Kid on the Climate Block

Systemic risk conversations, initially focused on the finance sector, have recently expanded to include climate-specific risks. Systemic climate risks could end up dwarfing the magnitude of more conventional business and societal climate risks. The systemic risk conversation is evolving rapidly, and is hard to keep track of.

A Real Estate Tipping Point is Inevitable

We know the world's ice is melting, but how fast will it melt? That's the trillion dollar question. Climate change is rapidly increasing the risks of river flooding, threatening riparian real estate. The more explicitly you consider your own risk adversity, the more robust and realistic your real estate decision-making will be.
