“By providing full information on climate change risks, Carbon Delta enables capital markets to drive economic change towards a sustainable future.”

He is passionate to reveal the full costs of physical climate risks at the enterprise level. Being based in Potsdam, Boris is managing Carbon Delta Germany GmbH and maintains close collaboration with the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK).
