Finances and insurances

As an insurance or a bank, you are particularly exposed to the consequences of global warming. Indeed, insurance costs to cover the climate-related expenditures and damages are continuously rising. As a result, some territories or projects have become uninsurable and difficult to fund.

Assets or liabilities, it is your entire balance sheet that is impacted.

Do not worry, there are some solutions to limit the impairment of your assets and investments:

  • Invest in a more sustainable way,
  • Limit the climate risks of portfolios,
  • Redefine insurability and new coverages of your contracts.

However, you need to be able to quantify the climate-related risks and the ROI of these adaptation solutions…
