Corporate Adaptation Survey


Four Twenty Seven and the University of Notre Dame’s Global Adaptation Index (ND-GAIN), with support from BSR (Business for Social Responsibility) published the 2015 Corporate Adaptation Report to generate insights into whether and how enterprises are preparing for the physical impacts of climate change.

This inaugural survey examines how corporations are addressing the need to adapt their business operations to changing climate conditions and aims to further the collective understanding of best practices, barriers, enablers, and strategies to prepare for climate change in the corporate world.

Climate Risk in the Supply Chain

Our online webinars cover global shifts like population growth, natural resource constraints and extreme weather. The webinars outline how these shifts are creating new challenges for corporations with global supply chains, causing disruptions, delays and cost increases. Sustainability and risk management professionals will play a crucial role in identifying, quantifying and mitigating risks arising from hazards like coastal storms, droughts, fires and floods.

Online Tools and Data Portals

“LIDAR data is often collected by air, such as with this NOAA survey aircraft (top) over Bixby Bridge in Big Sur, CA. Here, LIDAR data reveals a top-down (bottom left) and profile view of Bixby Bridge. NOAA scientists use LIDAR-generated products to examine both natural and manmade environments. LIDAR data supports activities such as inundation and storm surge modeling, hydrodynamic modeling, shoreline mapping, emergency response, hydrographic surveying, and coastal vulnerability analysis.” (source)
