Continuity Insights Management Conference

In 2023, natural disasters have already cost over $190 billion. With hurricanes, heatwaves, earthquakes, wildfires, and other weather-related incidents becoming more common, facility executives have to ensure their businesses are resilient in the face of climate change. In addition to taking precautions for life safety, organizations have to consider the toll a changing climate can have on human behavior. Research has shown that with an increasing heat, in particular, like the world experienced last July, can cause a rise in violent behavior.
