Dr Scott Kelly joins climate-analytics firm Risilience to build ‘next generation’ of product


SVP of Model Development and Analytics served as Chief Economic Advisor to the Parliamentary Commissioner of the Environment in New Zealand.

 Climate tech firm Risilience has, today, announced the appointment of Dr Scott Kelly as SVP of Model Development and Analytics.

A key part of his role will be the development of more sophisticated and robust quantification frameworks for companies to assess the potential impacts and benefits of becoming more sustainable.

In a distinguished career, Dr Kelly served as Chief Economic Advisor to the Parliamentary Commissioner of the Environment in New Zealand, after working as an Associate Professor at the University of Technology Sydney.

He was instrumental in raising early awareness on the importance of sustainable finance, working to establish the Climate Measurement Standards Initiative to standardise climate reporting across the financial sector in Australia.

During this time, he consulted with various government agencies in Australia and New Zealand, the Bank of England and Central Bank of Netherlands to advice on physical and transition climate risks.

Led by CEO Dr Andrew Coburn, Risilience was spun out of the Centre for Risk Studies at the University of Cambridge, Judge Business School, where Dr Kelly was previously part of the research team.

 “Risilience has achieved tremendous things in a short space of time, building an incredible list of clients across a wide variety of industries”, Dr Kelly commented.

“To join such a talented, international team, helping to put risk science into the hands of global enterprises, is an incredible opportunity.”

While at the Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies in 2015, Scott was the principal author of an influential paper that foresaw the potential for disruption in financial markets due to the near-and-present danger of climate-0change-related transition risk, at a time when it was only thought to be a problem many decades in the future.

Dr Andrew Coburn, Co-founder and CEO of Risilience, added: “Companies rely on Risilience’s strong science and high-quality analytical tools to underpin their transformation to a low-carbon economy. Scott’s experience in the economics of climate change and leadership in quantification and research will be instrumental in building the next generation of our products.  We see this as the return of a longstanding colleague who will bring considerable expertise to the team.

“As we seek to accelerate our growth after the recent announcement of our Series B funding round, bolstering our team with Scott and other industry leaders is a sign of the importance of our mission to serve organisations at any stage of their decarbonisation journey.”
