Rising sea levels and the increasing frequency and severity of extreme weather events such as wildfires, hurricanes, and excessive heat illustrate the consequences of a changing climate. How should institutional real estate managers evaluate current and future physical risk and integrate it into investment decisions? While numerous qualified physical risk assessment providers exist in the marketplace, they use different methodologies, report their findings uniquely, and often use different assumptions in creating their findings. As part of the long-term commitment to addressing climate change and physical risk, ULI partnered with global real estate investment management firm LaSalle Investment Management to examine and report on physical climate risk assessment in How to Choose, Use, and Better Understand Climate Risk Analytics. The report analyzes the current state of the climate risk analytics market and provides guidance for the real estate industry to evaluate physical risk data analytics products. Attendees will gain insights into the complex nature of assessing physical climate risk and will be offered a framework for better integrating climate risk assessments into the investment process.
