Our history
Acclimatise Group Ltd. was formed in November 2004 by John Firth and Dr Richenda Connell. At that time, and despite the science of climate change being well advanced, corporates and governments were taking relatively little action to prepare for the inevitable consequences of climate change. John had decades of experience working in the UK water sector, and was pioneering the sectors’ work recognising climate risk and building resilience. At the same time, Richenda was leading the UK Climate Impacts Programme, developing best-practice frameworks for adapting to climate change and its impacts. Recognising the need for a step change in the way the world was responding to the climate challenge, John and Richenda formed Acclimatise. Their vision was a world that is ready for a new climate reality – this vision remains at the heart of Acclimatise’s work to this day.

Since then, Acclimatise has developed its services and operates two distinct divisions: Advisory and Analytics. Advisory is the home of Acclimatise’s technical climate risk and adaptation expertise. For over fifteen years, the company has provided world-leading advisory services, helping corporates, investors and governments integrate climate change risk into their business processes and build their resilience. In that time, Acclimatise has completed over three hundred and fifty projects; this unrivalled experience underpins all of the company’s products and services, and provides it with a deep understanding of the changing risk landscape for its clients.

The company’s Analytics division draws on its technical expertise and packages it into cloud-based, user-friendly applications that enable clients to integrate climate change risk analysis into their organisations.

Acclimatise is a trusted advisor for many organisations across a wide range of sectors including government, finance, insurance, water, energy, transport, mining, agriculture, defence, food and beverages, and international development. We have successfully worked in over eighty countries for over one hundred and eighty public, private and non-governmental organisations.

Acclimatise’s staff hold M.Sc and Ph.Ds in a wide variety of subjects including climate and atmospheric science, environmental management, civil engineering, land-use management, water resources, climate finance, economics, conservation biology, GIS and computing, international law and development, journalism, and media and communications. The team collaborates across three continents with new offices in India, France, and the US.
