“Resilience is the capacity to deal with, overcome, learn from or even be transformed by adversity.” Edith H. Grotberg, 1999
Building resilience will help you to reduce your vulnerability to environmental risks such as: severe weather events and climate changes, supply of raw materials, or changes in demand and legislation.
The UKCP09 projections for Kent indicate severe weather events could become more severe and commonplace and general trends of :
Future planning will allow your business to adapt and respond to opportunities and threats as they arise allowing you build resilience and seek opportunities
(Change in demand for services)
Example: Increased demand for tourism services due to milder winters and hotter summers temperatures.
(Implications for investment, insurance and stakeholder reputation)
Example: Lack of preparation for flooding/ heat waves results in higher than needed financial impacts.
(Vulnerability of supply chain, utilities and transport infrastructure)
Example: Power cuts prevent staff from working on IT equipment.
(How will climate risks and impacts be managed effectively?)
Example: Climate change risks and actions not embedded in existing risk registers and business processes leading to vulnerability of service delivery.
(Impacts on the processes of service delivery)
Example: Care workers unable to reach vulnerable residents due to flooded roads.
(Impacts on building design, construction, maintenance and facilities management)
Example: An intense downpour combined with blocked drains causes ground floor offices to flood.
(Implications for workforce, customers/clients and changing lifestyles)
Example: Winter illness is reduced due to warmer winters.
Identify ways in which your businesses has been or could be affected by severe weather and any responses that have or could be implemented
To help you identify the most significant impacts on your business to focus your adaptive efforts you can complete the climate change adaptation plan.
