Action and Impact
With around 300,000 commercial properties facing some level of flood risk, it is vital for business owners to be aware of, and plan for future flood events. How do you know if your business is at risk of flooding and if it is, what should you do?

That is where Landmark Information’s Know Your Flood Risk campaign comes into play, raising awareness of the risk of flooding with an online resource that helps people find out if their business premises is at risk now or in the future.

The ‘Business Guide to Flood Resilience’ is a free-to-download guide which, when used in conjunction with Landmark’s environmental due diligence reports, enables businesses to accurately understand what their flood risk is. It also helps them to be prepared and plan for flood resilience, to better protect their organisation from flood events in the future.

By following the steps in the Guide, businesses might be able to obtain insurance cover at improved premiums. It also helps towards compliance with regulatory requirements such as the Occupier’s Liability Act 1984.
