This article describes the risks and opportunities that arise from the impacts of climate change for the German industry. In this context, the authors present the new "Climate Check" ("Klimacheck"), developed by adelphi and Prognos. The "Klimacheck" helps small and medium-sized enterprises in the manufacturing industry to identify whether they will be affected by extreme weather events and other consequences of climate change. By this means, companies can incorporate future climate risks into their respective business planning and develop specific adaptation strategies preemptively.
