Look for Local Solutions

With the current emphasis on reducing your carbon footprint, it’s the perfect time to assess whether or not there are opportunities to improve your resilience hiding right underneath your nose.

For example, check to see if there is nearby tree cover that could be used to provide shade for part of your building and help mitigate the urban heat island effect. It’s also a good idea to see what other FMs in your area are doing to increase resiliency. You can compare strategies as they will likely be dealing with similar issues as the ones affecting your building and may have unique strategies to offer.
