Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL)

ClimateWise actively identifies how the insurance industry can better support the transition to a low-carbon, climate resilient society.

Our research is impact-orientated, collaborative and practical, supporting insurers and the broader finance industry in the development of financial innovations to tackle the widening climate-risk protection gap (the difference between insured and uninsured losses) and ensure a stable green transition.

ClimateWise undertakes impact-orientated, collaborative research to help insurers and the wider financial sector proactively respond to the risks and opportunities posed by climate change. Three core themes focus on the industry’s leadership, regulation and climate risk.
