Climate change has made some aspects of development more difficult, as planners, builders and others have to take extreme heat, drought, wildfire and other impacts into account.

That’s something Molly McCabe spends a lot of time thinking about.

McCabe is CEO of HaydenTanner, a real estate advisory firm that focuses on investing in communities and the built environment with an eye toward sustainability and social equity. She’s also a developer and former chair of the Urban Land Institute’s Responsible Property Investment Council. 

The Show spoke with her to learn about some of the bigger sustainability-related questions developers and their clients are asking right now.
