This guide introduces the Business ADAPT (analyze, develop, assess, prioritize, and tackle) tool. The tool follows a step-by-step climate resilience framework inspired by existing good practice risk management models. Business ADAPT provides additional questions for three business sectors with significant climate change challenges: Food, Beverage, and Agriculture; Water and Energy Utilities; and General Manufacturing. It aims to help company executives and senior managers gain a better understanding of climate-related risks throughout their value chains, identify where emerging market opportunities exist, take into account community needs, and develop plans that are integrated throughout the enterprise and receive the support of communities and civil society. It further includes examples of climate resilience in action.

This guide has been developed by companies and organizations engaged in the Partnership for Resilience and Environmental Preparedness (PREP) — a pilot partnership formed to address the risks and opportunities that climate change impacts pose to businesses and the communities on which they depend. One of the primary goals of PREP is to engage and inform good practice in companies as it relates to building climate resilience in partnership with communities. This guidance has been developed on behalf of the PREP member companies Calvert Investments, Entergy, Levi Strauss & Co., Earth Networks, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc., Starbucks, and Swiss Re.
