Four Twenty Seven & Climate Earth Receive 2014 EBJ Business Achievement Award
The firms were recognized for their innovative supply chain climate risk management application.
San Diego, Calif. (January 22, 2015) — Four Twenty Seven and Climate Earth are pleased to announce that they were chosen to receive the CCBJ award for Technology Merit: Climate Risk Management and Adaptation. The firms were recognized for launching the first enterprise-quality application enabling large corporations to quickly map and quantify global supply chain risks due to climate change.
“In what is widely regarded as a stable market, a number of companies exceeded the norms of low single-digit growth with double-digit growth or ambitious ventures into new practice areas or technology development,” said Grant Ferrier, president of Environmental Business International Inc. (EBI, San Diego), publisher of Environmental Business Journal (EBJ). EBJ has honored 50 companies for revenue growth, acquisitions, innovative project designs, technology applications, new practice areas, social contributions and industry leadership in 2014.
“Our applications help large corporations quickly identify and quantify risks in their supply chain,” said Emilie Mazzacurati, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Four Twenty Seven. “For companies concerned that extreme weather events will disrupt their supplier network, halt operations, and cost money in lost production and sales, we provide a practical and effective way to manage risk and reduce vulnerability.”
The partnership blends the environmental impacts modeling expertise of Climate Earth with Four Twenty Seven’s ability to screen for climate change impacts and analyze risks and vulnerabilities. Supporting CCRM is the Notre Dame Global Adaptation Index (ND-GAIN) that tracks countries’ levels of preparedness to deal with climate disruption and other global shifts.
The 2014 EBJ awards will be presented at a special ceremony at the Environmental Industry Summit XIII in San Diego, Calif. on March 11-13, 2015. The Environmental Industry Summit is an annual three-day executive retreat hosted by EBI Inc.
