Physical climate risk analysis requires relevant and specific climate data as well as asset and portfolio-level information

Climate Data Insight and
Projections

Both businesses and the financial community need reliable climate information to effectively price risk, invest in risk mitigation, and account for and disclose material information. So that risk exposures and mitigations are not downplayed or "greenwashed."  Stakeholders need robust and transparent climate projections to have confidence in corporate assessments of vulnerability and risk.

 

Assessment of future climate risk requires specialized knowledge of how the climate will change (e.g., emission scenarios) on time and spatial scales that vary between business entities. Our climate specialists carefully navigate the interaction between climate science and business by translating complex climate projection simulations into useful information for stakeholders who are less familiar with the complex science. In addition, we couple the downscaled, high-spatial resolution climate data we provide to surface water, groundwater, and terrestrial models to better understand the potential impacts of climate on water, land, assets, communities, and infrastructure.
