After almost 30 years working on climate strategy and climate risk, we have come to realize that climate risk management depends on the more targeted and effective communication of climate risks and opportunities. We focus on helping companies address the fundamental “is it worth it?” and “can I do it?” questions of climate change risk management. Through our climate risk coaching, climate risk scenario building, and climate action tipping point services, and with the support of our proprietary Climate WebTM climate risk knowledge management tool, the Climatographers can help you navigate a prudent and well-informed course through the uncertainties of climate change and climate risk.
The Climatographers have authored hundreds of publications and reports during their tenure in the climate change field. Contact us for a comprehensive publications list.
