Building Climate Resilience in the Real Estate Sector

Please RSVP to expedite check-in A live webcast will be streamed at 3:30 PM EST at www.eesi.org/livecast (wireless connection permitting)   The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) and Citizens Climate Lobby (CCL) invite you to a briefing to explore the climate risks facing the U.S. real estate sector, as well as policy solutions and innovations to help protect this crucial piece of the American economy. The turbulent 2017 hurricane season has sparked a national dialogue on how future extreme weather events may impact the security of homes, businesses, and other built infrastructure. Given the economic activity and investment tied to the buildings sector, its long-term health will depend on the capacity of public officials, insurance agencies, and property managers to adapt to climate change risks. Join us for a discussion on ways the public and private sectors can collaborate to develop the policy tools necessary to safeguard America's buildings and homes from future natural disasters.
