SLR and CLIMsystems announce strategic partnership and majority shareholding to deliver world-leading climate risk, adaptation and strategic advice to their clients
SLR, the global leaders in environmental and advisory solutions, has entered into a strategic partnership and taken a majority shareholding with CLIMsystems, the climate software and risk assessment experts, to combine their capabilities and deliver world-leading climate risk analysis, adaptation assessments and strategic advice to their clients.
The need to develop climate resiliency strategies has never been greater, especially due to the increasing adoption of the Taskforce for Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) reporting requirements around the world. Our combined teams will be able to help investors and operating companies respond with well informed and effective strategies, based on robust modelling and practical actions.
As part of the partnership, SLR is making a significant investment in CLIMsystems. This allows the collaborative development of further software and data solutions and advisory services building on the strong capabilities the two partners already offer.
CLIMsystems is a leader in climate software and data, with nearly 30 years of experience and heritage in modelling the impact of climate change. Starting as a research programme part funded by the New Zealand government, the team is now recognised as world leading climate change adaptation and risk assessment experts.
Six members of the extended CLIMsystems team are named in the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) that was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 and, as such, represent the strong scientific underpinning of the CLIMsystems suite.
CLIMsystems products and services include detailed and customised climate data, analysis and assessment, software, training, coaching, and management advice.
Neil Penhall, SLR’s CEO, commented “I’m delighted to agree this strategic partnership with Peter Urich and the CLIMsystems team. We know that to help our clients shape their strategies and take action on the climate emergency, we need a clear understanding and analysis of both climate data and potential impacts. The combination of SLR’s Climate Advisory services and CLIMsystems software, data and analytical skills will give clients the full package they need to move forward on their climate ambitions.”
Peter Urich, Managing Director at CLIMsystems added “For nearly 30 years, the team at CLIMsystems has been a step ahead and we now want to further the success of the business and meet the demanding needs of clients today. The partnership with SLR enables the next stage of service development and expands offerings to these clients.”
