Massachusetts business leaders know that climate change is costly. When power outages, supply line disruptions, flood damage, heat damage, compromised seafood and polluted water incidents keep increasing in severity and frequency, Massachusetts businesses get the bill. When our insurance comes at sky-high cost or is unavailable at any price, you can bet that climate change has our attention.
