Public Data for the Public Good

Four Twenty Seven takes 1st prize in the ESRI Human Health and Climate Change Challenge!
We developed a web application as part of our commitment to the White House Climate Data Initiative.

The app explores heat and its impacts on human health. Look up your county and learn more about  the drivers of heat vulnerability.

From the desk of Emilie

Welcome to our new website and newsletter!

We just gave our website a major do-over to connect the dots between our vision and our customized solutions for businesses, government, and think tanks. The changes reflect both our growth as a company and our desire to engage better with our diverse set of clients and partners.
We hope you take a moment to explore and look forward to hearing from you.

Our New Blog: The Resilience Sandbox

Climate adaptation is messy and complex. There’s no manual on how to become resilient that really captures all the nuances and challenges cities and businesses face when planning adaptation responses.

Our blog is now called The Resilience Sandbox, and is a space to explore and learn how to build resilience together.

Rather than pretending that we have all the answers, we want to share stories about how we work with our clients and partners, the challenges that we face and how we turn these challenges into opportunities. Read more.

Recent Project: Heat & Social Inequity

How does climate change impact heat vulnerability? View this video for an overview of our research findings and our award-winning application.

What We’re Reading

SB 379, the legislation passed last week in Sacramento, which requires that local hazard mitigation plans address climate adaptation. Local governments must now assess vulnerabilities and identify local risks from climate change. This means setting goals, policies and objectives: a big step forward.

With a passion for story telling, Sam is using his work to make the business case for climate action as well as quantifying the true benefit of sustainable programs to local communities.
