New AECOM publication helps businesses become climate-resilient

The climate conditions of a location, region or country have always impacted the productivity and profitability of businesses operating in that area. Weather – and particularly extreme events – impacts infrastructure, agriculture and food production, supply chains, health and economic opportunities, and much more.

Climate resilient businesses know when and how to respond to a changing climate, and have established strategies and investments to protect people, profits, assets and supply chains.

This brief guide targets business executives, and makes the case for considering the potential risks from climate change and integrating climate resilience into existing business frameworks and processes now. It links to a second document with a step-by-step guide and tools
to assess climate risk, develop solutions and support decision-making for implementation.

AECOM is currently working across a number of programs to help implement and facilitate ideas and tools to better understand the risk that disasters pose, and utilize our skills and strengths to help clients cope, recover and even prosper. We have completed more than 200 adaptation and resilience projects for private and public clients across the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe/Middle East and Africa. Looking at local, regional, state, national and international scale at climate hazards, risk, vulnerability, investment and resiliency, we have supported numerous businesses in the energy, water, resources (mining and agriculture) and property sectors to respond to climate risks.
