Report Summary:

In 2021, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) identified 18 separate billion-dollar disasters in the United States alone. In recognition of the growing impact to asset portfolios posed by such events, countries worldwide are adopting new regulations on climate risk disclosure.  At the same time, institutional real estate managers in markets across the globe also face a number of challenges related to physical-risk associated with climate change, including a lack of clear industry norms or guidance related to:

  • Selecting physical-risk climate science data providers that are aligned to business needs
  • Evaluating the products and the complex science underpinning them
  • Integrating this information into real estate life-cycle decisions

This collaboration between ULI and LaSalle Investment Management provides insight to the land use industry on how to interpret climate-risk analytics, identify risks effectively, and incorporate them into decision-making throughout the investment life cycle. The report is divided into six sections excluding the Executive Summary:

  1. Motivation and Key Takeaways
