Weather Ranks #1 on Top 10 Biggest Global Risks

The World Economic Forum (WEF) released its Global Risks Report for 2021 earlier this year. In the report, the top global risks facing the planet in addition to impact horizon times were highlighted. In reviewing the global risk landscape as highlighted in the WEF’s report, potential threats were plotted from low to high against impact and likelihood to happen.

Out of all the risks currently facing countries, businesses, and individuals around the planet, “extreme weather impact” and “climate action failure” ranked as the #1 and #2 top 10 risks by likelihood. For context, “cybersecurity” ranked 9th out of 10.

Weather is the #1 risk facing enterprise businesses

Things are moving quickly:

  • Weather and air quality events are increasing and becoming more volatile
  • Last year for example we saw a record for total number of hurricanes in North America, and global wildfires and flooding
  • Catastrophic business impact from weather which used to happen once or twice a year now seem to be happening weekly (ERCOT, Suez Canal)

Weather intelligence is the new cybersecurity for the c-suite, but 10x bigger:

  • Your daily operations are being impacted by the weather every single day
  • Jobs are stake, company growth trajectories are at risk, not to mention safety and operational efficiency issues are escalating
  • Executives are now being held accountable for their climate resiliency strategy, or lack thereof  

Of course, you can run your business without weather intelligence. By doing so, however, you’re losing money every per week, and risking a catastrophic event like the Suez Canal which cost more than $10B or the EROCOT disaster which cost more than $16B and a CEO losing their job.
