Resilience: The ability of real estate and infrastructure to survive and thrive under social and environmental shocks and stressors.

With a rapidly changing global and environmental landscape, being prepared for the impacts of climate change on the built environment is more important now than ever before. As property and infrastructure companies find themselves on the frontline of these shifts, investors are seeking more transparency on their contributions to global changes and their role in providing solutions.

We were joined by GRESB Head of Americas Dan Winters, and Verdani Partners Founder and President Daniele Horton to learn the role of resilience in creating a sustainable built environment, and strategies to manage risks and take advantage of opportunities that future change will bring.
