20 November 2014 – ClimateWise is delighted to announce that Maurice Tulloch (Chairman, Aviva Global General Insurance and Chief Executive Officer, Aviva UK & Ireland General Insurance) has become its new Chair.

Maurice takes on the role of Chair at a time when impending international policy decisions could have an impact on future insurance operations, from both a risk management and an investment perspective.

Commenting on his appointment, Maurice said:

"Insurance companies have an incredibly important role to play when it comes to reducing the risks of climate change. Not only are we long-term investors with a responsibility to act sustainably, we are also there to protect our customers against the adverse impacts of climate change itself. This requires partnership and greater engagement between industry and government, particularly in terms of the frameworks established for incentivising a low carbon future and improved resilience."
