How Real Estate Can Adapt and Prepare for Climate Risks

We’re already seeing the impacts of climate change on our real assets—so how do we better prepare for future climate events? Watch the recorded webinar with CBRE, Four Twenty Seven, Nova Group, and Measurabl as we unpack these challenges.

This year has put the effects of climate change on full display: wildfires burning across the Americas and Australia; hurricanes and typhoons destroying various parts of Asia and North America; global temperatures continue to rise, causing heat and water stress across the world. Unfortunately, it’s likely a preview of what’s to come. Scientists predict that we may recall 2020 not as the “worst in recorded history,” but perhaps one of the more mild years that we experience this century— unless we make drastic improvements to reduce society’s impact on the planet.

As society prepares for these impending disasters, the real estate industry faces a more immediate threat. How can buildings be better equipped to adapt to our changing world? Understand how you can assess your exposure to physical climate risk, collect data to make measurable improvements, and protect your real assets. Experts from CBREFour Twenty SevenMeasurabl, and Nova Group will discuss ways you can take action today.
