Resilience Index™ Dataset


Investors need a comprehensive understanding of climate risk factors in order to make informed investment decisions. Other climate risk datasets provide limited analysis and only focus on physical risk, neglecting the complex interplay between other important factors such as socioeconomic and demographic variables.


The Climate Alpha Resilience Index™ provides the most comprehensive risk analysis indicators to help investors understand which climate factors play the most important role in valuation forecasts. With over 1,500 datasets, it blends real estate transaction data, socio-economic indicators, and reputable climate models to cover 40,000 US zip codes and Canada. The Resilience Index™ not only captures physical risk, but also a comprehensive set of indicators that take into account the interplay of significant climate, socioeconomic, demographic, and market variables.

Our research suggests that investing early in climate-resilient geographies will generate more than 70% higher returns on real estate portfolios by 2030 alone. 

Climate Alpha’s Resilience Index™ comprises climate risk, vulnerability, and readiness scores and is run across optimistic, business-as-usual, and pessimistic climate scenarios based on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP):

Climate Risk Scores

Physical risk indicators for fire, flood, heat, storm, drought, and sea level rise

Vulnerability Scores

Social weaknesses related to elderly population, mortgage delinquency, crime rate, poverty level, and other features

Readiness Scores

Societal preparedness against disruption measured by per capita income, education levels, fiscal spending, quality of infrastructure, healthcare availability, clean energy potential, and other features

Taken together, these sub-indicators allow users to understand both a location’s climate risk exposure and its actual likely impact based on vulnerability and readiness in one dataset.
