Assessing Climate Change Risks and Opportunities for Investors: Property and Construction Sector

This report by the Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC) shows that the property and construction sector is currently exposed to climate events and this is likely to be exacerbated by climate change.  In the paper the argument is made that existing regulatory responses are inadequate to protect the industry and there is genuine concern surrounding insurance affordability and availability.  The authors provide an overview of how the sector may be affected by a range of issues including flooding, bushfires, extreme weather events, hail and sea level rise.  The report also contains brief summaries of adaptation options with examples of companies known to be responding to the anticipated challenges.
