New research on the auto sector shows what consumers can expect from companies investing in supply chain resilience. Juanma Castro-Vincenzi (Harvard University) first explains how the global auto industry has responded historically when hit by major flood events. He then explores implications for the industry’s future including the number and size of plants, efforts to hold excess capacity, and the impact on consumers of companies investing to adapt to a world with climate change (32:51).
