Climate change

The frequency and intensity of natural catastrophes are increasing such that the UN has declared a climate crisis. We are here to support our clients as they look to navigate the significant, but surmountable, climate challenges they face.

Climate change brings widespread risks and opportunities to all sectors. For insurance, the changes in frequency and intensity of extreme events means that risk knowledge is vital for the sustained operational resilience of the insurance market.

Major risk types include physical risks, transition risks and environmental liability. As we move towards the goal of environmental sustainability, overcoming these risks will be business critical. This hub will help you understand the climate impacts facing organisations.
