The Weather Company announced as Climate Week NYC media partner

NEW YORK: The Climate Group and The Weather Company are pleased to announce a global media partnership for Climate Week NYC 2013, the annual global summit that convenes the world’s top business, government and thought leaders to discuss how clean tech innovation can boost growth and create jobs.

The Weather Company’s portfolio of global brands includes The Weather Channel, weather.com, Weather Underground, Intellicast.com and Weather Services International (WSI). The company reaches 100 million US households on TV, 100 million monthly unique Web consumers, and has received more than 100 million cumulative app downloads on smartphones and tablets. The company has an unduplicated audience of 155 million unique visitors monthly across TV and online. With cutting edge technology, 200+ meteorologists, and a sincere passion for weather and how it affects lives, The Weather Company provides the world's most accurate and trustworthy weather information, content and analytics whenever weather matters.

Climate Week NYC is taking placing from September 23-30, 2013. This year’s event is also supported by Founding Sponsor Swiss Re, Lead Sponsor Hewlett-Packard and Supporting Sponsor NASDAQ. Climate Week NYC is organized by international non-profit The Climate Group.

"For us at The Weather Company, climate change is not a political issue; it is a scientific issue – and the science tells us we have to act," said David Kenny, The Weather Company Chairman & CEO. "We are committed to telling the climate story and increasing climate change awareness and we are proud to partner with The Climate Group as we continue to inform our viewers and users about the science behind this important issue."

Amy Davidsen, The Climate Group Executive Director US, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with The Weather Company for the fifth Climate Week NYC. Their commitment to analyzing the topical issues of climate change and low carbon leadership, and the consequential impacts on America’s economic opportunities and energy security is to be admired.”

Climate Week NYC has become one of the most important annual global forums on climate change and the potential of the low carbon economy; each year leaders gather in New York City for a week-long agenda packed with diverse public-facing events and high-level meetings.

The Climate Group is the top global low-carbon leadership organization; it is working internationally with a coalition of companies, states, regions, cities and public figures to inspire and catalyze leadership for a Clean Revolution: a low carbon future that is smarter, better and more prosperous. The combined annual revenue of its corporate members alone surpasses $1 trillion.
