Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland

Manage flood risk

There is evidence that our changing climate is creating a greater risk of flooding. Also, decisions taken in the past about where to site developments have put a lot of property in flood prone areas.

Floods can be very damaging to your business, however planning in advance can help reduce damage as well as speeding up your  recovery and minimising losses.

This guide outlines what your business can do to prepare for and deal with the consequences of flooding.
