Environmental Risk Dataset

Geospatial insights into nature-related risks to resilience and sustainability

Organisations are coming under pressure to determine how they interact with nature, both in terms of their impacts, but also how much their operations, investments, and strategies depend on natural capital. Both regulators and investors are asking for data-led reporting related to complex areas, including biodiversity, deforestation, water pollution, air quality and waste generation. At the same time, businesses need to successfully anticipate, manage and mitigate disruptions to operations and supply chains from the growing impacts of natural hazards. The amplifying role of contextual factors such as climate change, geopolitics and evolving legislation is also increasingly on the agenda.

Our Environmental Risk Dataset provides organisations with a global view of their exposure to nature risk and natural hazards, comparable across 198+ countries. Granular subnational data enables screening of assets, suppliers, and portfolios for 22 risk factors covering the state of the natural environment, the legislative situation, and physical threats. The Dataset enables companies to assess their risk exposure, highlight resilience gaps, identify opportunities to reduce impacts and dependencies, and report those risks and exposures in line with international benchmarks such as the recommendations of the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) and the Science Based Targets Network.

Other factors, such as governance, corruption, poverty or indigenous peoples’ rights, can be integrated from other datasets to provide further understanding into the overall environmental risk landscape, while our Climate Risk Dataset offers powerful geospatial insight into how climate change will evolve over time.

The depth and breadth of the issues covered in the Environment Risk Dataset provides powerful, geospatial insights that help companies to:

  • Assess

    Perform global risk assessments across operations, supply chains and portfolios

  • Report

    Align with requirements of the TNFD and other frameworks

  • Locate

    Spot commercial opportunities in new and existing markets

  • Mitigate

    Isolate exposure to nature-related and natural hazard risks and develop effective mitigation strategies

  • Navigate

    Comprehend the legal and regulatory landscape related to natural capital

  • Understand

    How your exposure is affected by contextual factors such as governance, indigenous peoples’ rights and poverty

  • Enhance

    Build resilience and improve your strategic planning with data-led decision making
