Businesses, investors, insurers and individual home owners are facing significant financial risk related to the impacts of extreme weather against their operations, properties and supply chains. Competitive, regulatory and stakeholder pressure have been increasing to monitor, mitigate, measure and report against these triple bottom line threats.
Climate.IQ (CIQ) is a modeling software solution that evaluates potential climate risk and its associated damages to properties and communities. CIQ combines hydrological modeling, climate information, future change projections, historical weather events and economic information to generate an intuitive risk score that tells users how risky their properties and communities are facing different climate disasters.
CIQ also projects damage to properties and communities, considering the acreages, building types and other engineering aspects. Advanced components of Climate.IQ will also utilize satellite and remote sensing data to forecast related risks such as flooding, sea level rise, tropical cyclones, tornadoes, extreme heat, extreme cold, droughts and earthquakes.
The CINCS team holds deep understanding of natural capital systems and their associated financial risks and opportunities. Our technology development partner, subject matter experts and advisory council members complement and complete the organizational intelligence and operational capacity necessary for success.
