Escalating climate change has driven rapid transformation in both sustainable facilities management and preparing facilities for future challenges. This webinar explores the intersection of climate resilience planning and decarbonization within building management and outlines key considerations facility managers should have in mind navigating climate-related risks and implementing strategies to reduce carbon footprint.

While climate change is one of the major risks to our built environment, it also presents an opportunity for organizations. The session will break down the complexities of optimizing climate resilience in buildings, with practical steps for facility managers to develop sustainability strategies that address and mitigate climate change impacts and reduce carbon emissions in the long-term.
