Willis Towers Watson acquires Acclimatise in move that further strengthens climate resilience leadership
Willis Towers Watson, a leading global advisory, broking and solutions company, has acquired Acclimatise, the market leader in climate change adaptation advisory and analytics services, to meet growing demands from corporates, Governments and financial institutions.
Willis Towers Watson’s Climate and Resilience Hub (CRH) has expanded its scope to help clients address the challenges of climate and related Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues across physical, transition and legal liability risks. Combining the capabilities of Acclimatise and the CRH will enhance the company’s leadership in physical climate risk and integrate this with a growing range of wider client services on climate and resilience.
Acclimatise, based in the UK with teams in France, the US and India, brings a wealth of complementary experience in climate adaptation to Willis Towers Watson, having completed more than four hundred and fifty climate adaptation consulting projects since it was founded in 2004.
The company has developed a unique platform to assimilate and apply climate model and earth observation data to support risk analytics and on-line applications. This has delivered a market leading position among financial services, natural resources, development institutions and Governments across developed and emerging markets to support national planning and climate finance.
