Consultancy services

We work with a number of retail customers to provide bespoke consultancy services which address business issues based around weather and climate

Climate consultancy

Climate change and its wider impacts are an important consideration for businesses worldwide. Issues such as carbon reduction and potential changes to the availability and sourcing of raw materials are two examples of how our changing climate is affecting business planning. We offer bespoke consultancy services to directly assess the risks and opportunities to your business posed by a varying and changing climate.

Weather Sensitivity Analysis

Our Weather Sensitivity Analysis service is designed to uncover and quantify the precise relationship between the weather and your business performance. This comprehensive resource from the Met Office offers a valuable insight into how weather affects consumer behaviour and product/service demand.

Bespoke observational datasets

Our weather data underpinned a hugely successful promotional campaign run by the tyre manufacturer Pirelli. The campaign, which raised awareness of the benefits of their winter tyres, resulted in a large increase in sales of the tyres in the UK.
