AXA has announced a partnership with resource management advisor, SUEZ aimed at improving resilience of cities and territories against flood risks.
The new joint offering, available globally, will provide communities and industries with analysis of vulnerability to any form of flooding (flash flood, marine submersion, rising groundwater level, rupture of hydraulic structures, overflowing); solutions to reduce vulnerability for locations and territories through business continuity plans, education and prevention; and tools for awareness and assistance in crisis management (alert tools, material and human means, and so on).
"Facing climate change, the resilience of territories and industries, in particular the protection against flood risks, is a major stake for public and private economic players. This new service offer developed with AXA is completely in line with our strategy which aims at accompanying businesses and communities in their prevention of catastrophes linked to extreme weather events", stated Annelise Avril, CEO of SUEZ consulting activities.
