"ITI and its member companies look forward to working with the U.S. government, and governments globally, to help ensure that communities have access to the information and tools they need to prepare for future climate risks such as rising sea levels and more frequent extreme weather events.  As a signal of this dedication, three of the private sector commitments announced today came from our member companies.  ITI's companies are key global innovators, and innovation will be essential to achieving future climate resilience, sustainability, and economic growth."
