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.  This Corporate Flood and Heat Risk Management program engages the Industrial, Commercial and Institutional (ICI)/Multi-Unit Residential Buildings (MURB) sectors to understand and foster uptake of best practices and new technologies related to stormwater management, flood resilience, and heat risk adaptation. 

This Resource Hub provides business managers, sustainability consultants, and facility managers technical and educational support from TRCA’s Sustainable Technologies Evaluation Program and Ecosystem and Climate Science teams to improve their property’s adaptation to a changing climate.
