Climate Change Resilience Leaders

Our Story

Fernleaf formed in 2014 in Asheville, North Carolina. We are a climate resilience planning firm that uses in-house developed software, AccelAdapt, to provide communities with accessible, data-informed, and equity-embedded insights.

With a team of industry experts, we work directly with all levels of government – from federal to local – to support a deeper understanding of climate vulnerabilities and risks as well as the mitigation and adaptation actions necessary to address them equitably. We bring equity values, quantifiable data, and standards of excellence to every project we work on. Our processes are continually refined, fueled by our values, informed by our clients, and advanced by our best-in-class technology.
