Climate Disruption: Overcoming the Unexpected

Climate disruption, caused by the burning of fossil fuels poses a serious threat to our environment, health and economy. But there's another type of disruption to consider; the Internet of Things (IoT) will create massive disruption in telecommunications, cable/ broadband, cloud computing and even how we define the Internet. Today, 'business as usual', means having plans in place to address disruption, not 'if' but when they arise. What kind of disruption can we expect to face? What preparations have leading businesses made to ensure minimal damage to real estate assets when disaster strikes? What are leading corporate real estate end users and service providers doing to ensure the enterprise can operate effectively in the face of climate disruption? How should the gaps in risk management planning be identified and addressed?

Key Takeaways:

  • Gain practical examples of the factors which drive the need for business resiliency and reduce risk associated with climate change disruption. 
  • Deepen your understanding of how to utilize and implement innovative technologies that can effectively enhance business resiliency planning.
  • Reevaluate and determine whether your existing strategy can withstand the various disruptors facing your assets now and in the future.
