About Us“Humans have operated on the basis that nature is free, and it’s always going to serve us. But nature is biting back in big ways”. -- Iggy Bassi, Founder & CEO of Cervest
Cervest offers cloud-based Climate Intelligence (CI) to empower enterprises, governments and financial services companies to manage and adapt to climate risk at an asset-level — transforming climate complexity into decision-useful insights.
Cervest’s vision is to democratize access to Climate Intelligence, driving a shared responsibility to protect the world’s critical assets — including our greatest shared asset, the planet.
While operating a sustainable agribusiness in Ghana, Iggy Bassi struggled to find the scientific data to explain the increasingly volatile weather events causing bad harvests. While locals dismissed a bad harvest as an “act of God”, Bassi was convinced that the science told a different story, if only there was a way to break down climate risk for individual businesses.
After selling his agribusiness, Iggy created Cervest in 2015. He joined forces with Imperial College London and the Alan Turing Institute to combine the world’s leading climate and statistical science into meaningful climate insight.
Today, this concept is the foundation of Cervest’s AI-powered Climate Intelligence platform.
The platform provides businesses, governments, insurance companies and financial markets with a united framework for assessing asset-level climate risk at a global level.
By combining machine learning, cutting-edge statistical science and physical science with modern scalable computing practice, Earth Science AI processes and models petabytes of data to present a unified view of climate risk that’s never before been possible.
EarthScience AI enables EarthScan to show how each asset’s climate risk has changed in the past 50 years, what the risk is now, and how it will change in the next 80 years, based on different climate scenarios.
