Sustainability lies at the heart of their enterprise, guiding their every move.
“A warmer climate is now inevitable. To build resilience is imperative. We must adapt our cities, businesses, and assets to withstand extreme climate events such as floods, wildfires, heatwaves, droughts, storms, and rising sea levels,” assert the Clidapt entrepreneurs.

Ambitious Environmental Goals: A Global Expansion on the Horizon
In 2023, Ilu Space’s primary goal is to secure initial customers, particularly in sectors crucial to their mission, including real estate, insurance, and urban planning. But their vision extends far beyond the close of 2023. With an initial foothold in Europe, their next target is expansion into North America and Asia.
Product development remains at the core of their long-term strategy. They envision their platform evolving to incorporate features to help organizations in tackling climate change, including climate risks analysis, vulnerability assessment and adaptation planning. Ilu Space is determined to not just participate but lead the way in the realm of climate adaptation technology, playing a significant role in global resilience-building against the imminent challenge of climate change.
