Protecting our Capital - adaptation in cities creating resilient place for business (2014)

Description

The benefits that business brings to cities, including jobs, tax revenue and services, are one of the drivers for cities' climate resilience. Similarly, businesses are reliant on public infrastructure and environmental policies to support and guide their operations. This report shows how cooperation between cities and businesses leads to better resilience city-wide. Both sectors can benefit from a greater understanding of each other’s climate change risks, and companies can help reduce city-wide risks by embedding local adaptation needs within their business operations.
This report focuses on how cities’ actions create more attractive, resilient places for business, it is not the responsibility of cities alone to mitigate and adapt to climate change. It provides cities with information and insights into the physical risks businesses face locally and how their actions help reduce those risks.
