Global Risk Data

Decoding the global risk landscape

For multinational companies and financial institutions, knowing how, where, and why you are exposed to sustainability and resilience risks is fundamental to the success of your business.

We have spent over 15 years mapping the global risk landscape; developing specialist geospatial datasets and predictive models that enable businesses to look at individual issues, or at the whole ecosystem of interconnected risk. Our data can visualise the geographic distribution of climate change impacts and resulting socio-economic vulnerabilities years into the future. We can assess the human rights implications of government policies, conflict, and resource security, and trace the drivers fuelling political risk and social unrest to anticipate instability.

Why is this important? In an increasingly complex and uncertain world, it enables our clients to further their understanding of how risks develop and form; where threats to resilience and sustainability will emerge; where mitigation strategies need to be put in place; and, significantly, where commercial opportunities exist.

Managing risks in your operations, supply chains and investments has become increasingly challenging. By simplifying the risk identification process, our geospatial risk data enables you to quickly and accurately pinpoint, prioritise, and respond to over 190+ risk issues for any location worldwide and track the trajectory of the issues that matter most to you in the evolving risk landscape.

With our industry-leading portfolio of global risk data, we are uniquely placed to help organisations put human rights, political risk, and environmental factors at the heart of their decision making.
