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.” 

ERIS is proud to partner with ClimateCheck® to help the environmental due diligence industry assess the increasing risks to property due to the changing climate. ERIS now offers reports to enable every real estate stakeholder to instantly understand the climate risks for their properties.

Comprehensive Climate Risk Analysis

ERIS can provide in-depth property-specific reports outlining the physical risks over time to all the hazards. Includes full search within property boundaries and geographic comparisons.

Account for Escalating Operational Expenditures

Drought — Increasing water expense
Temperature — Increasing utility expenses
Precipitation — 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.
