Asia Pacific ViewPoint - The Occupier Approach to Resilience September 2019
The concept of resilience has gained significant traction in the real estate industry in recent years. Although many occupiers are coming to view resilience holistically and as a concept that includes a broad range of priorities such as cybersecurity and health & safety, the threat posed by environmental risks is often underestimated.
The World Economic Forum now ranks extreme weather events, climate change and natural disasters as the top three global threats. As the increasing risk of natural hazards becomes more of a constant reality, tenants must take steps to ensure their operations and business can overcome any disruption and continue to function as normal.
With environmental hazards increasingly affecting the bottom line, the need for tenants to have a comprehensive resilience strategy has never been clearer. This ViewPoint by CBRE explains how occupiers can deploy a variety of strategies to ensure that their operations can withstand long-term environmental challenges.
