The Checklist on this site can help you assess how climate change will affect your business.
Check with the Environment Agency whether your business is in a flood risk area.
There is a lot of information and advice available to help you prepare.
Talk to other businesses in your area to share, and learn from, good practice.
Develop a business continuity plan to manage and reduce disruption from severe weather events.
Consider how your customers’ needs (for example, increased demand for cold refreshments) may affect your business.
Check with your insurance company that you are fully insured, particularly against the effects of flood and storm damage.
Take some practical steps to minimise the potential impacts to your business, for example by using a flood board, collecting rainwater, or providing shade…and plant trees!
Raise visitor awareness of any risks and communicate the positive steps you have taken.
Be aware of the health risks posed by climate change, communicate them to staff and visitors (for example, highlight need for sun protection).
The checklist guides you through a series of questions to help you assess your business’ preparedness and identify practical actions you can take. Go to Checklist
