ESG FinTech Climate X bags €6.3m in funding

Climate X, a London-based climate risk analytics provider, has closed a €6.3m seed funding round as it plans to expand its product suite.

The investment was led by CommerzVentures and A/O PropTech, with contributions also coming from Voyagers Climate Tech Fund, Blue Impact Ventures and Deloitte. The round was also backed by WIRED founding editor-in-chief David Rowan, former La French Tech director Kat Borlongan and Eventbrite co-founder Renaud Visage.

This investment will enable Climate X to support its growing customer base and expand its product offering.

Climate X provides location-specific risk ratings and loss estimates for extreme weather events linked to climate change through to the year 2100, under multiple warming scenarios.

Its Spectra solution is an on-demand climate risk data analytics platform which is available through an online platform or API data feed. It acts as a vertically integrated solution that covers a range of hazard types.

This solution ensures firms can meet regulatory compliance and build resiliency by incorporating climate change-related risks into business decisions, pricing and investment strategies.

CommerzVentures managing partner Paul Morgenthaler said, “Climate X is a standout example of a Climate FinTech that is solving a multi-trillion-dollar problem for the financial industry. This exceptional team has produced a vital tool capable of delivering insights into climate change-related risks for global real estate.

“They’re enabling decision-makers to place climate mitigation and resilience at the heart of their strategy, delivering the visibility that is essential to creating a sustainable business model. We look forward to working with the team as they accelerate their platform’s expansion internationally.”

The company previously raised €1.3m in its pre-seed funding round back in 2021. Pale Blue Dot led the round, alongside BWC, NewChic Capital, A100x and others.
