Historical, facility-specific vulnerability assessments and disaster plans have not considered the interconnectivity of industry, community, and the environment. With increasing instances of extreme weather events, facility-specific planning requires reassessment to prepare for the myriad challenges brought by such extreme events disrupting industry and their connected communities. This presentation focuses on the Texas Gulf Coast and the importance of climate resiliency planning and preparedness now, auditing facilities through a new lens to make informed, targeted investments for the site and beyond, acting collaboratively to implement solutions that provide multiple values to minimize business interruption and protect our critical coastal regions from physical and environmental impacts today and tomorrow.
