About the event

Stress testing at Swiss Re Institute (SRI) suggests that if we take no action against climate change, the global economy will contract by 18% by 2050. This is a huge figure and will affect all of our daily lives.

Re/insurers are one crucial part of the many puzzle pieces we need to assemble in order to address climate change. Ahead of the COP26 UN climate meeting in Glasgow, we would like to invite you to an open exchange on both the risks of climate change, and the potentially positive impact insurers can have on reducing carbon footprints.

In a world suddenly confronted by social distancing, dialogue becomes ever more important. Swiss Re Institute's Executive Dialogue Series (EDS) brings together Swiss Re executives and external experts in virtual dialogues with valued senior clients to discuss challenges across lines of business and operating environments. With a global audience, and operating in different time zones, the EDS will feature key topics that will help us navigate the post-COVID-19 world.
