Extreme Weather and the Small Business Bottom Line

Five foot storm surge in Boston

 

Water, water everywhere!

If the last thirty years are any indication of the future, it looks like Boston could be in for more flooding.  Sea levels in Boston are rising at three to four times the global average1.  Annual precipitation has increased ten percent.2 -The amount of rain that falls during severe weather events has increased 74%3  What does this mean for our small business community?

In conjunction with the American Sustainable Business Council , the Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts and A Better City, we are pleased to present “Extreme Weather Events and the Small Business Bottom Line.” Boston’s leading climate adaptation experts will  brief the small business community on possible near-term climate change effects in our city.

  • How does climate change create risks for Boston’s small business community?
  • How does the City of Boston plan to protect property, road access and municipal services during severe weather events?
  • What measures can you take to protect your business and educate your employees?
