AUSTIN – Austin has emerged as a leader in climate change resilience by investing in and implementing sustainability measures, improving its ability to protect property values and attract real estate occupiers amid climate risks, according to a new analysis from CBRE.

In their first North American City Sustainability Study, CBRE econometric advisors assessed climate change resilience across three categories: transition risk, physical climate risk and mitigation and adaptation measures. The study evaluated cities’ emissions-reduction targets, policy and regulations, cost of retrofitting properties, vulnerability to climate change and climate-related disasters, green building stock, green financing and other factors.

Besides Austin, other major North American cities similarly well positioned include Boston, Denver, Montreal, New York, Ottawa, San Francisco, Toronto, Washington, D.C. and Winnipeg. These cities have all pledged to be carbon neutral or achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 (some earlier) and have increased their use of renewable energy over the past five years.
