Irish business Gamma is expanding into international markets by extending its focus on fight against climate change.
Irish data business Gamma has forged an alliance with fast-growing geospational climate data player Sust Global that will power its international scaling journey.
The partnership involves the integration of Sust Global’s data into Gamma’s Perilfinder platform which will allow clients access to forward-looking climate change hazard maps and APIs across risks such as wildfire, flooding, cyclones, sea-level rise, drought, and heatwaves.
“Climate change impacts are increasing all the time and companies need to have a complete overview of all the risks that could impact their operations and portfolios”
It will also allow Gamma to visualise new datasets, consisting of billions of data points, including a global forest fire model.
Climate risks grow
“Our aim is to make it easy for clients to identify, assess and report on potential property level climate change risks,” said Richard Garry, chief commercial officer at Gamma.
“As well as expanding the reach of the data we deliver through Perilfinder™, this partnership enables us to offer insights on more risks across more markets and serve customers with a global solution.
“Climate change impacts are increasing all the time and companies need to have a complete overview of all the risks that could impact their operations and portfolios. It’s a challenging time, and everyone must play their part in measuring and reducing climate change impacts. To do that, you need data. Through Sust Global, with whom we are delighted to work, we are playing our part by equipping companies with the information they need to make more informed assessments.”
Through this collaboration, Gamma will be expanding its focus on the fight against climate change by providing valuable insights on increasing physical climate risks for homes and businesses, which could impact organisations’ property portfolios and investment decisions.
“As an innovative property-level climate risk dashboard provider, Gamma is a good fit for our foundational climate risk data delivered via API, taking it to a growing audience,” explained Alastair MacGregor, chief operating officer of Sust Global.
“As well as helping both of our businesses to expand and grow, this collaboration is delivering valuable insights to companies that need to measure fast-evolving climate change risks and identify strategies to ensure that they can thrive on our changing planet.
“Getting access to high-quality data is one part of the puzzle, visualising it is the other part. Having Gamma take our information and make it more accessible and digestible for companies is fantastic. We look forward to seeing what the future holds in terms of the partnership and its transformational impact on sectors like insurance and banking.”
