CAR is a leading UK consultancy with an international reputation in risk studies. CAR’s vulnerability-based approach has been used in projects ranging across the full spectrum of natural and man-made hazards which affect the built environment. These include catastrophe perils such as earthquake, volcanic eruption, tropical and temperate windstorm, and flood, as well as routine perils such as subsidence, burglary, and unexploded ordnance. Over 25 years of its existence, CAR has built up a prestigious and international client base, working on projects in some 30 countries across 5 continents. Private sector clients range from primary insurers, reinsurers and brokers to multinationals in the petrochemical, aerospace and transport infrastructure sectors. Public sector clients include national, regional and local governments, as well as international organisations such as the European Commission, United Nations, World Bank, and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
