XDI is part of The Climate Risk Group, a group of companies committed to quantifying and communicating the costs of climate change.
Ours is a mission-driven company.
We exist to help our clients and community understand and manage unavoidable climate change, whilst demonstrating the imperative for a low carbon world.
We see every contract as a collaboration. We are trusted by governments, NGOs, companies, banks and communities - and while some see themselves in opposite corners - we believe it will take all actors working together to solve this challenge.
Data and information alone do not create change: data needs humanity and humanity needs ambition.
Our vision is not just to identify physical climate risks, but to also mitigate them.
Our goal is a more climate-resilient community.
Our approach is to work with you over the course of your climate risk journey.
We continue to work with some of the world's largest companies and are the largest provider of climate risk data to the financial services industry.
Under constant development with clients and industry, The Climate Risk Engines analyse the impacts of extreme weather and climate change to critical infrastructure and other physical assets. An independent market survey ranked XDI the highest for hazards covered, geographical reach and capacity for analysis of large number of assets.
Physical Climate Risk is what we do - what we’ve advised on since 2007. We provide the world’s most detailed physical climate risk analysis and adaptation capabilities.
We build from the ground up using bespoke code, running on specially configured banks of high- speed servers. We use engineering methods focused on the physical mechanisms that would undermine the ability of an asset, system or person to function in the advent of climate impacts.
XDI analytics test assets against the evolution of hazards for which there is no precedent; a truly forward-looking approach which embodies scenario analysis best practice. Data from the latest IPCC climate models is used.
Catastrophe models rely on historical data which is limited to insured loss of an outmoded asset base within the former geographic boundaries of climate hazards
XDI identifies failure and damage thresholds at the level of asset componentry (e.g. electrical or construction elements) to build up an accurate picture of the overall impact of a climate hazard on an individual asset.
Simple approaches to physical risk assessment fail to quantify resilience of an asset. Exposure of a hazard is not enough information to plan for mitigation of the effects of climate impacts, or build resilience in future operations.
XDI runs multi-terabyte parameter data from the latest IPCC models through statistical engines which generate high fidelity hazard probability distributions.
Heat and precipitation trend data is available in the public domain. An incorrect, though often used approach is to estimate the frequency and severity of climate hazards from these basic metrics. The approach lacks scientific rigor.
