Our mission

Our mission is to deliver high-quality weather and climate services to optimize global food productivity and reduce the impact of climate change.


Weather Impact is established in 2014 by two weather and water experts: Gerrit Hiemstra and Arnold Lobbrecht. These business partners have worked together for 15 years in many projects and in training operators of water management systems. Gerrit and Arnold have backgrounds in meteorology and hydrology with degrees from Wageningen University and Delft University of Technology. They have been personally involved for a long time in bringing the two worlds of weather and water together, both in science and in practice.
