Jupiter’s solutions span industries, use cases, and global perils

Leading organizations across sectors rely on Jupiter

Jupiter provides the broadest range of analytics offerings to both private and public sector organizations critically impacted by climate change. Our solutions are used for capital planning, enterprise and portfolio risk management, infrastructure resilience engineering, pricing and underwriting, safety and operations, and shareholder and regulatory response.

Jupiter’s solutions detail the impact of flooding, wildfires, extreme heat, drought, wind, and precipitation and offer spatial resolutions from the portfolio level down to the street. They cover future time horizons from one hour to 80 years. Jupiter insights can be delivered via geospatial web-based applications, APIs, or reports.

Jupiter provides physical risk climate analytics to at least one of the world’s five largest firms in asset management, banking, insurance, oil and gas, mining, power, and construction, as well as the United States government.

Our solutions address use cases from enterprise risk management and portfolio planning to long-term resilience engineering and immediate emergency response.

Banking

The scope and granularity of Jupiter solutions capture the most complete view of climate risk across the globe and across time, allowing banks and financial services firms to project: how a portfolio of assets may be affected by climate change; the perils it will be exposed to; vulnerable segments and locations; and how that risk will change over time and across varying carbon emissions scenarios. With this knowledge, firms can incorporate climate risk into their overall enterprise risk management strategy to respond to increasing demands from regulators and shareholders, and to disclose under TCFD.

Asset Managment

Asset Management
Taking action to quantify and proactively address potential impacts of extreme weather to vulnerable assets is a critical component of managing investment risk and overall systemic risk. In 2020, prominent global asset managers began to issue clear guidance that warns companies that physical risk identification—based on best-in-science climate models—and resiliency engineering are essential to maintaining investor confidence. With the world’s only global- to street-resolution analytics solutions based on forward-focused climate models and data, Jupiter offers asset managers both portfolio-wide and asset-specific risk projections, for all major perils, worldwide, based on their chosen time horizons and emissions scenarios.
Use Cases

Risk management

  • Quantify and optimize both real asset and financial asset value exposure to physical climate risk across global portfolios using standard identifiers such as CUSIP and FIGI
  • Understand supply chain risk to portfolio companies

Corporate guidance

  • Demand more detailed risk disclosures. Understand when to require a more comprehensive assessment and disclosure of climate risk from portfolio holdings
  • Persuade corporations, senior executives, and boards to take action

Portfolio planning

  • Understand portfolio exposure to physical climate risk
  • Understand individual securities exposure to physical climate risk
  • Key input to create and manage sustainable and green funds
“Investors are turning to a new breed of high-tech start-ups [such as Jupiter] that can measure the risk climate change poses to real estate — from an hour to decades into the future. And these firms count major corporations and cities as clients.”

—CNBC

Manufacturing

The world’s manufacturing infrastructure—much of it located near bodies of water for transportation/supply chain, cooling, and process support reasons—is under imminent threat from multiple perils. Flooding from storm surge, sea-level rise, and heavy and prolonged rainfall, along with high winds from extreme storms, threaten facilities, the people who work there, roads and bridges, and host communities. Physical risk is significant for the mining industry as well, where flooding, drought and water stress, and extreme heat impact both operations and safety. Jupiter’s solutions enable our customers to develop better resilience strategies and understand the vulnerabilities of their facilities and assets.

Agriculture

The world’s food growers are vulnerable to the full range of climate change-driven perils: flooding, wind, heat, wildfire, drought, extreme precipitation, and hail. To monitor changing precipitation and warming patterns, Jupiter solutions offer very high spatial resolution, covering any point on Earth’s land surface, and support for variable time horizons and emissions scenarios. They deliver portfolio-level risk analyses of assets vitally important to agricultural enterprises: growing fields and orchards, water-supply sources, processing facilities, supply chains, and more.
Agriculture
Use Cases

Resiliency planning

  • Plan for changing growing seasons
  • Prioritize capital investment in improving physical infrastructure (for example, irrigation and drainage systems, processing centers, warehouses)
