Risk Management

Risk management involves taking a proactive approach to identifying possible risks and weighing up the costs and benefits of different actions. Many businesses don’t recover from a weather-related event, planning to prevent, prepare, respond and recover is vital.

In adopting a risk management approach, business should consider:


  • What are the implications of climate change for my business and my destination?
  • What are the key things I rely on to operate my business?


  • Who are my most important customers & suppliers?
  • How will I let them know about a change in my business?
  • Who can assist me to respond and recover?


  • How can I operate in the absence of key resources, people and facilities?
  • How can I continue to operate long term?
  • How will my customers react to climate change or other weather-related events?

“Sustainability is first and foremost about managing risk and identifying and creating value.”

Noel Purcell, Westpac Banking Corporation
