About Adaptive Capability

Adaptive Capability provides strategic advice to help businesses create and preserve value in the face of a changing climate.

Founded in 2015, we help organisations deepen their understanding of how climate change could disrupt their operations and/or demand for their products and services.

We have identified many business opportunities presented by the growing transformation taking place as corporates, consumers and governments react to mounting impacts of climate change and related environmental degradation.

Our clients gain an understanding of their risk exposure to the physical, reputational and revenue related impacts given their operating locations, product/service portfolios, supply chains and markets served.

The Adaptive Capability team includes experienced business and marketing strategists, risk managers, analysts, program managers and sustainability experts, supported by a broader network of specialists.
