Climate Change: An Insurance Industry Perspective
The insurance industry plays a vital role in helping individuals, businesses, and governments manage risks associated with various hazards.

Climate change poses significant challenges to the insurance industry, affecting risk assessment, profitability, and overall sustainability. Insurers must adopt proactive measures to address these challenges effectively. By embracing data-driven approaches, incentivizing risk reduction measures, and fostering collaboration with governments and climate experts, the insurance industry can build resilience and help society adapt to the impacts of climate change. As stakeholders in the global fight against climate change, the insurance sector's contribution is not only essential for its survival but also for creating a more resilient and sustainable world.
