The business impact of climate change

To help our clients understand and plan for the business impact of climate change, Swiss Re has put together a pack which outlines some of the key insurance issues you should consider.

The Australian Government has stated it will introduce measures in 2010 to mitigate climate change and has committed to reducing carbon pollution by between 5% and 15% below 2000 levels by 2020. It is likely these measures will include a carbon trading scheme.

Swiss Re in Australia has put together a pack which outlines some of the key insurance issues you should consider. For example:

How will you disclose the value of carbon credits required under a carbon trading scheme?
How may your business be impacted by increased flood/tropical cyclone/bushfire?
How are all key perils covered? 

To help our clients Swiss Re has developed a four pillar climate change strategy. Our strategy aims to advance our knowledge and understanding of climate risk, developing products and services to mitigate – or help adapt to – climate risk, raising awareness of the issue through risk dialogue with clients, employees and the public and tackling our own carbon footprint.
