About us

Climate X is a purpose-driven climate tech company set to revolutionise a new vertical of climate adaptation software by changing the way the world manages assets, property and infrastructure.

We’ve embarked on an exciting project to build a solution that will let users (individuals with one property or businesses with millions of assets) access our platform to look at future climate pathways to identify

  • how their property/assets could be damaged by severe weather events and
  • what that damage might do to the asset valuations.

Climate X will save customers millions of pounds, be more resilient to climate change, meet incoming regulatory requirements and make smarter investment decisions.

We work with the UK’s leading climate scientists, AI specialists and financial services professionals.
