ENVI-met is a software company based in Germany. It specializes in microclimate simulation and urban heat island mitigation.

The software is used to predict the effects of urban design changes on the microclimate environment and human thermal comfort. The program can also be utilezed to assess the potential of urban design interventions to improve the urban microclimate. The final goal is therefore to  make informed decisions on urban design and gain insight into the microclimatic conditions in urban areas of cities worldwide.
