ClimateWise

ClimateWise is a global network of over 30 leading insurance companies united by a common concern for climate change and the threat it presents global society and, consequently, the insurance industry.

ClimateWise members participate in Action Research collaborations and annually report their activities in response to climate change in line with the core ClimateWise Principles. Members therefore have considerable resources at their disposal to help frame a collective response to climate change.
