The Climate Risk Research Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public benefit corporation. We collaborate to conduct ground breaking research focused on helping policy and decision makers identify the potential impact and magnitude of climate related risks on assets, companies, communities, countries, economies and societies. 

Meet Our Team

Our Core Team works to facilitate collaboration, to develop strategies and project plans, and to build shared work environments with the open-source tools and data needed for experts to effectively analyze, develop and deploy robust climate solutions. In addition to our Core Team, we benefit from volunteer collaborators from leading organizations and institutions from around the world. These experts participate in surveys and many actively support our research and development efforts.
