The Climate Change Vulnerability Index evaluates the vulnerability of human populations to extreme climate events and changes in climate over the next 30 years. It combines exposure to climate extremes and change with the current human sensitivity to those climate stressors and the capacity of the country to adapt to the impacts of climate change.

The index provides a single figure rating for climate change exposure, sensitivity and adaptive capacity, helping companies calculate risks from future climate change.

The Climate Change Vulnerability Index can help you:

  • Understand the exposure of your operations, supply chains, and investments to climate change-related risks
  • Compare sites within countries or regions using subnational risk data
  • Align corporate reporting with TCFD recommendations and other benchmarks
