Voluntary Resilience Standards
An Assessment of the Emerging Market for Resilience in the Built Environment
Tuesday, October 17th | 10:00-11:00 AM PT
On behalf of The Kresge, Energy, and Barr Foundations, Meister Consultants Group recently prepared a report, “Voluntary Resilience Standards: An Assessment of the Emerging Market for Resilience in the Built Environment.” This webinar will provide an overview of the report’s key findings from its market characterization of voluntary standards to increase resilience in the built environment.
The webinar and accompanying report can assist facilities and planners in understanding existing resources, inform state and local leaders as they draft policies to encourage the adoption of standards and resilient building techniques, and help develop the strategies of funders and program managers. Resilient facilities and infrastructure are a crucial component of increasing community preparedness to natural and human-made hazards and climate risks. The analysis was informed by desk research, interviews with experts, and focus groups with practitioners and facility’s managers.
