Is climate change impacting your real estate strategies?

On the east coast of the US this week it is cold.  And not just throw on a jacket cold but epicly cold.  In the northeast specifically it’s been cold enough to keep people from coming into work.

From a business continuity standpoint, weather is an important factor when deciding where to locate certain functions.  Most wouldn’t put a call center that can’t have downtime in a hurricane zone.  Similarly you wouldn’t put a data center in a region with poor electrical infrastructure.

More and more extreme weather is beginning to have the same effects.  At what point does it need to be taken into account to minimize downtime of operations?
