The planet is facing unprecedented change. It requires extraordinary action.

We have lived as if economic activity doesn't exist within the environment. The twin climate and biodiversity crises that are now undermining economic activities are the result.

A collaboration between Climate Engine and Google Cloud, SpatiaFi connects the economy and the environment by linking asset level data with Earth data. We are creating the world's most complete view of the intersections between economic activities, the climate and nature to support regulatory reporting, risk reductions, and sustainable finance.

A Spatial Finance approach to meeting climate and sustainability

Spatial Finance refers to the integration of geospatial data with financial analysis and decision-making. It combines location-based economic information such as assets and the value of assets with Earth data derived from satellite imagery, sensors, and other scientific sources. 

Spatial Finance enhances the understanding, assessment, and management of financial risks and opportunities for sustainability associated with physical assets. It can help evaluate the potential risks and returns of investing based on locations and environmental factors. It can also aid in assessing the vulnerability of assets to natural disasters or climate change and support the development of financial products that address climate-related risks. By relying on observations and repeatable scientific methods, it offers a new level of accuracy, transparency, scalability and trust in climate and sustainability data in the context of financial decision-making.

As the climate and biodiversity crises increase regulatory pressures, the financial impacts of extreme events, and the demand for sustainable finance, SpatiaFi has been built to usher in new levels of action on climate and sustainability. SpatiaFi leverages Google Cloud's leading geospatial technologies and the world's best available science to support organizations on their journey's to help build a more sustainable, climate resilient future.
