Climate align your decisions and actions with EarthScan

On-demand climate risk screening and reporting for your built and natural capital assets
Climate align your decisions and actions with EarthScan

Every decision needs climate intelligence

From offices, data centers and factories, to mines, forests and grasslands, everything is at risk from climate events. EarthScan™ gives you a clear picture of how often and how severely extreme weather and climate events such as heat waves, flooding and wildfire could impact the physical assets you own, manage and rely on – from today until the end of the century.

Cervest climate intelligence (CI) enables chief climate risk officers, heads of sustainability and ESG managers to make climate resilient decisions and assess climate risk for due diligence, disclosure and governance reporting.

EarthScan insights help decision-makers across industries make decisions to adapt with the constantly evolving climate

The physical risks resulting from climate change will impact or damage millions of assets in the coming years. For real estate owners, managers, occupants, and investors, this means a loss of revenue, low or no return-on-investment, and ever-increasing insurance premiums.

People are adapting by using EarthScan to:

  • Understand when, where and how physical risks will affect their assets. Make decisions on whether to invest in new properties, sell, or shore up existing real estate.

  • Discover which properties are most at risk from which climate events. Investigate mitigation measures and ensure assets are retrofitted to be climate resilient.

  • Download the ebook, "Using Climate Intelligence to confidently adapt to climate risk in the real estate sector" to learn more.

Climate physical risks disrupt manufacturing assets, such as factories and distribution centres, and their associated supply chains. As volatile climate events increase, firms will need dynamic, on-demand climate intelligence to stay ahead of risks and protect their bottom line.

People are adapting by using EarthScan to:

  • Establish operational resilience. Reassure shareholders and insurers that you’re aware of the risks facing your factories, distribution centres or supply chains.
