Climate Change: An Imminent Threat

The science of climate change is teaching us that properties across the United States — and the world — are experiencing an unprecedented increase in the frequency of climate events and related losses. According to Larry Fink of BlackRock,”Climate change is driving a profound reassessment of risk and asset values.” And to tackle this monumental shift, in March 2022 the SEC proposed a requirement for Climate Risk Disclosure for property transactions across the US.

ERIS is Proud to Partner with ClimateCheck®

To help the environmental due diligence industry keep up with increasing property risks due to the changing climate, ERIS now offers reports through ClimateCheck® to enable every real estate stakeholder to instantly understand their risks due to climate change.

ClimateCheck® Report

Comprehensive climate risk analysis: in-depth property specific reports outlining risks over time to all the hazards. Includes full search within property boundaries and geographic comparisons.

Account for Escalating OPEX

Drought — Increasing water expense
Temperature — Increasing utility expenses
Storm — Increasing repair and maintenance
Flood — Increasing cost of insurance
Fire — Increasing cost of insurance

Factor in Decreasing Values
Future buyers will factor in growing climate risk. Protect yourself from ballooning climate change cap rates at refinancing and disposition milestones.

Anticipate Total Loss Scenarios
Understand risk to total loss events from fire and flood.
