EWN's role in avoiding the climate risk impact on businesses

The article mentioned above is a great example of climate risk and downstream impacts. EWN can quantify the risk of such major weather events occurring, for any given location in Australia. High resolution climate risk reporting more than a decade in advance. This is actionable data to reduce risk and liability. It's hard to say you didn’t know something was going to happen when that knowledge is readily available. We will also warn of such events beforehand so you can do something about them. Do you know how many times this has happened in the past, what the chances are again in the future? We do, ask us.
