Ibadan, 10 January 2024. – Sustainability reporting SaaS company Earth Blox has announced its availability on Google Cloud Marketplace. The company provides customers with a scalable and customisable platform to rapidly assess climate and nature-related risks and impacts for millions of assets and facilities worldwide. The Company aims to address regulatory pressures on financial institutions and corporations regarding disclosing their impact, along with their dependencies on climate and nature.
As interactions with nature are highly local, such disclosures require analyzing vast amounts of climate and nature data. Furthermore, doing so is highly time-consuming and difficult to scale as extensive teams of GIS experts, climate scientists, and conservationists are necessary to find the data and, ultimately, make sense of them.
Earth Blox aims to address these challenges by enabling customers to integrate climate and nature data into financial decision-making. It first acts as an aggregator, bringing together all scientific, robust, transparent datasets necessary for climate and nature analysis and reporting.
In addition, the platform taps into a vast amount of data products ranging from high temporal and spatial resolution satellite imagery to high quality, specialized scientific data products from NASA, ESA, WRI, IBAT and those hosted by the Earth Engine catalog. After this, it makes these datasets fully interoperable and queriable at the click of a button.
Speaking on the launch, Earth Blox CEO, Dr Genevieve Patenaude, said, “Our launch today marks a significant milestone in simplifying the complex journey of regulatory compliance for climate and nature-focused frameworks.” The CEO also added, “With our debut product on the Google Cloud Marketplace, we’re providing a pathway for companies to navigate their sustainability compliance journey with ease.”
