24 July 2015 – A report has been published from the Economist Intelligence Unit, commissioned by Aviva, on the value at risk of climate change to investment, pensions and long-term savings.


The report highlights the damaging effects that climate change is likely to have on long-term global economic growth, prosperity and standards of living. As significant investors, positive actions by the insurance industry will be crucial in support of a reduction in the risks associated with climate change. As such, insurers need to become more proactive in trying to link their investment activities with potential, systemic, benefits in their underwriting. 

ClimateWise attended the launch event on 24 July at Aviva headquarters in London.
