Netzwerk Klimaanpassung & Unternehmen.NRW is German for “Network on Climate Adaptation & Business.NRW”. Given this is quite a long name, we often refer to our network as “NKU“.
The NKU is ‚the’ network and competence center at the interface of the business world and the very urgent topic of climate adaptation. At this interface, we have formulated two goals:
- We support businesses that supply climate adaptation solutions, to grow, to find cooperations, to be seen and to be successful – because there is a huge need for technologies and services in this developing sector.
- We enable companies from any other sector to understand the risk their business faces with respect to climate hazards such as floods, heat stress or drought, and we provide support in finding the right solutions to become more climate resilient.
Next to providing information and support to those companies directly, we also create a link between companies and other stakeholders such as research institutions, branche associations and business development agencies on the topic of climate adaptation in North Rhine-Westphalia.
While our focus is on North-Rhine Westphalian companies our impact goes well beyond these borders!
