Corporate Flood and Heat Risk Management Resource Hub

Corporate Flood and Heat Risk Management Resource Hub

Human-induced climate change is putting people, ecosystems, and the economy at risk. The International Panel of Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) has identified human-induced warming of urban areas is leading to heavy precipitation and flood risks. In the Greater Toronto Area, businesses will need to assess upstream and downstream impacts related to their operations to mitigate the impacts of extreme heat and flooding on their property.  

PPG’s Corporate Flood and Heat Risk Management program is engaging sustainability professionals from the Industrial, Commercial and Institutional (ICI)/Multi-Unit Residential Buildings (MURB) sectors to learn about and foster uptake of best practices and new technologies related to stormwater management, flood resilience, and heat risk adaptation. 

No matter the size or sector of your organization, this Resource Hub provides technical and educational support from TRCA’s Sustainable Technologies Evaluation Program and Ecosystem and Climate Science teams. The videos included in this resource hub will discuss flood and heat risks in Canada, accessible resources, and the benefits of utilizing Green Infrastructure (GI) and Low Impact Development (LID) techniques as sustainable  solutions to build climate resilience.

These FREE resources provide business managers, sustainability consultants, and facility managers with the knowledge to improve their property’s adaptation to a changing climate.
