What is Climate on Demand?
A web-based application with global coverage that generates on-demand, location-specific climate hazard exposure scores through 2100 (by decade) producing individual and portfolio risk scores, including scenario analysis capabilities. Dig deep into risk scores and examine specific risk drivers, explore underlying indicators, and capture various dimensions of risk.
An early-2023 update will include climate risk financial metrics and impact scores.

Translate physical climate risk into financial impact
Climate change has far-reaching business implications and will continue to affect the magnitude and frequency of acute and chronic hazards.
Effective climate risk modeling must comprehensively capture physical climate trends and assets’ climate exposure and vulnerability.
Best-in-class hazard insights give information on the potential for climate-related physical events or trends that may damage or destroy an asset.
Capturing the unique characteristics that determine each asset’s climate exposure, is essential for accurate modeling of interactions between hazard and vulnerability.
Accurate vulnerability estimates reflect the susceptibility of an asset to damage or business interruption requiring deep understanding of all exposure-related aspects.
Basing climate assessments in financial modeling generates decision-ready metrics to translate climate risk into a common currency, for portfolio management and risk strategy.
