As part of our commitment as a B Corp, and alignment with UN SDGs, Nova Group places climate actions with the utmost importance. Nova Group has been an environmental expert for the last 35 years. We utilized our environmental and climate experts to develop advanced climate modeling to provide assessment and recommendations for asset-level resilience to climate change-related events (shocks and stresses). By providing this consultation, we protect our client's future acquisitions and assets. Nova Group’s team of experts is trained to interpret this data and provide knowledge and techniques to mitigate risk for our clients for the lifecycle of the asset (acquisition, management, deposition).
