OS-Climate Unleashes Power of Open Source to Develop Data and Tools Required to Meet the Paris Climate Goals

Linux Foundation’s OS-Climate, the non-profit organization providing open source data and software tools to enable the global shift to climate-aligned finance and investing, has today released for public collaboration three analytic tools critical to tackling the climate crisis.

The three tools, Physical Risk & Resilience, Portfolio Alignment and Transition Analysis, were developed cooperatively by OS-Climate members, led by BNP Paribas, Allianz and Airbus respectively.

With today’s public release, OS-Climate’s tool development moves into an exciting new phase. Enabled by cloud services contributed by Amazon and Microsoft, the door opens to the global community of academic institutions, government agencies, modellers, and software developers for further powerful collaboration in building out the tools and Data Commons, a library of data and metadata suitable for use with OS-Climate’s toolset.
