All this week on Marketplace Tech, we’re talking about climate change and how technology can help us become more resilient to it. It’s part of our series “How We Survive.” And a big element of the business story around climate change is risk. The risk to cities, states and countries, to businesses and the banks that invest in all of them.
Some regulatory bodies, like the European Central Bank, require climate risk assessment. It’s possible the Federal Reserve may eventually as well. I spoke with Emilie Mazzacurati, who runs the climate data firm Four Twenty Seven, which was acquired by Moody’s last year. It uses big data analysis to help companies and governments figure out the risk climate change poses to them.
