A ground-breaking approach to climate risk management has been developed by Deutsche Asset Management in partnership with California-based climate intelligence advisory firm Four Twenty Seven. Four Twenty Seven has mapped the physical locations of more than one million corporate facilities globally and uses climate science models to assess the likelihood of them being affected by climate hazards such as heatwaves, floods and cyclones. This means that exposure to catastrophic events for individual companies can now be calculated.
