ULSE Insights on Increasing Climate Change Resilience in the Built Environment


UL Standards & Engagement (ULSE) has published a video presentation, “Increasing Climate Change Resilience in the Built Environment,” examining how standards can help communities stay ahead of risks and hazards to human life and property from a changing climate.

In his presentation, ULSE executive director Dr. David Steel emphasized the need for forward-thinking design and construction in the built environment. He shared his insights at the recent Aspen Ideas: Climate summit, which focused on climate change resilience.

“How do we create greater resilience in the built environment, in the face of all the extreme weather that’s coming as a result of climate change, and most notably fires?” Steel asked. “We need to be thinking about how we promote resilience. What are some of the tools that we can use? That’s where we think our standards can actually play a role.”
