    About the 1st Annual International Technical Workshop on Climate Risk:

    Facing the Challenges of Global Climate Regulation, Compliance and Innovation

    Wells, Maine, USA, October 20‐21, 2016

    Long before the Paris Agreement1, scientists, engineers, business men and women, public officials,

    academicians and non‐governmental organizations (NGOs) throughout the United States and the world

    were hard at work in solving the myriad of problems associated with anthropogenic climate change.

    Now, with the legislative force of the Montreal Protocol2 in support of the Agreement’s reduction goals,

    it is time to bring these various communities of practice together to (1) leverage our many successes to

    date to inspire future innovations through ‘lessons learned’, (2) ensure that new atmospheric

    environmental regulations are timely communicated and economically implemented and (3) identify

    business opportunities for related sustainable development.

    Vision:

    That the United States remains a world industrial leader in meeting or exceeding the anthropogenicbased

    goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement and adopted by the Montreal Protocol.

    Mission:

    To ensure the technical diffusion, technology transfer and dissemination of disruptive technologies of

    advances in adaptation, mitigation and resilience in related fields, in particular, the energy,

    transportation and agriculture sectors.

    Objectives:

    To provide expert assistance in (1) identifying, (2) promoting and (3) adopting best‐in‐practice methods,

    processes and products, including standards development (e.g., measuring progress) to stabilize and

    ultimately reduce global climate change for facilities, infrastructure and manufacturing alike. This

    collaborative effort is necessarily interdisciplinary and involves researchers from both the private and

    public sectors, government representatives, NGOs and business leaders.
