The university evaluated the companies’ Disaster Resilience Scorecard using criteria such as market impact, scalability and measurable adaptation progress, AECOM said Wednesday.

Peter Williams, chief technology officer of IBM’s big green innovations unit, said the scorecard is designed to help cities assess and address their vulnerabilities to flooding, heat wave, hurricane and other extreme environmental events.

AECOM and IBM developed the tool to support UN member-states’ efforts to prepare, manage and recover from climate-related hazards and natural disasters.
