King’s Award for Risilience

A Cambridge climate analytics firm has been awarded the King’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation.

Risilience has developed climate-analytics technology which provides key risk insights for companies to help them identify sustainable opportunities, future-proof business strategy and protect investor interests.

The company has four main areas of expertise in science, risk, business and technology, based on pioneering research from the Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies.

At an event at the Clayton Hotel in Cambridge, the Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire, Julie Spence, presented the prestigious accolade to CEO, Dr Andrew Coburn.

Dr Coburn said, “It is an honour to receive the King’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category. This is testament to the incredible hard work and dedication of every single member of the team at Risilience.

“I’m extremely proud of what we’ve achieved together.

“We have developed digital-twin technology that is transforming the way major, global corporations map and respond to their impact on climate and nature, enabling them not only to mitigate risk but surface business opportunities.

“To be recognised in this way and awarded such        a revered accolade is a milestone achievement        for Risilience.”

His Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant, Mrs Julie Spence, explained, “Through my role as Lord-Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire, it’s a privilege to meet so many bright, creative individuals who are truly offering something unique and different.

“This award is only presented to the most credible, deserving organisations – I see it as the Knighthood of business awards. Risilience more than fits that bill, offering innovative technology that is truly shaping the world of business.”
