Providing data, analytics, and insights to help businesses, communities, and people manage climate risk, transition to a low-carbon future, and build a more resilient planet
Climate Change in a Changing World: The UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties, or COP26, took place in November 2021 in Glasgow, UK. More than 200 countries tackled issues surrounding climate change, including getting to net zero greenhouse gas emissions, supporting Paris Agreement goals, and securing the investments required to curb country carbon emissions.
The policies and commitments that emerged from COP26, including setting new targets to reduce emissions, will have profound impacts on how the world will adapt to climate change and the effects of global warming.
Verisk is on the leading edge of analyzing what COP26 and climate policy mean for the energy and natural resources industries, accelerating the energy transition, measuring and mitigating climate risk, and developing models and other solutions to make global business and the world more resilient.
Businesses, governments, and economies are working to mitigate the impacts of climate risk. How do data and analytics inform our actions? And how can models quantify climate risk now and in the future?
Getting global emissions to net zero is an extreme challenge. What are the implications of transitioning from a world that uses fossil fuels for 80% of its energy to one where renewable energies dominate? And how can we leverage and invest in technology to get us there?
Investing in resiliency initiatives can help prepare for extreme weather events brought about by climate change. What measures can we take to save lives, help communities and people, and protect natural habitats?
