LähiTapiola pilots Climatrix for flood risk analysis

In the summer of 2023, LähiTapiola piloted Climatrix service for calculating the climate risks of more than 5,000 insured assets in Finland. The project focused on coastal flooding.


In the pilot, Climatrix used e.g. the new flood data by the Finnish Environment Institute, safe building height data by the Finnish Meteorological Institute, and information on insured assets such as their values.


Based on the exact location of each asset, Climatrix calculated potential depth of flood water with different annual probabilities, separately for different climate scenarios and time frames. As a result, Climatrix offers visually engaging map and list views as well as asset-specific infographics. All calculations are provided via the API interface and as transfer files for further use in other business applications.

"As climate change progresses, physical climate risks - such as floods - will increase. This has a growing impact on the insurance business and its risk management. This Climatrix pilot has provided LähiTapiola insights into possibilities and challenges of data analytics in calculation of physical climate risks," states LähiTapiola's Chief Risk Officer Markku Miettinen.
