How climate change is expected to transform manufacturing

One of the primary threats facing manufacturers is the impact of extreme heat on productivity. As more workers become exposed to rising temperatures, the amount of work they can accomplish under such conditions is projected to drop, while threats to health go up. The issue is tracked by the United Nations’ Human Climate Horizons Project, published in partnership by the UN Development Programme and the Climate Impact Lab. The report projects how rising temperatures in the coming decades will impact productivity among workers around the world.
