Business case for adapting buildings

A new report ‘The business case for adapting buildings to climate change: niche or mainstream?’ aims to take a pro-adaptation argument to the heart construction and building design. It is the final report in Innovate UK’s Design for Future Climate, Adapting Buildings programme. Its key messages are directed at industry, clients and policymakers and recommendations are wide-ranging, including support for decision-making in the face of future uncertainty, better integration of climate adaptation into practice and strong leadership from government.
