A SPOTLIGHT ON CLIMATE RISK
28th Sep 2017

7:30 – 9:15am
Climate change is a key issue. Recent natural disasters show the very real cost that climate change could cause insurers in the future. And according to a recent report by the European Environment Agency, climate change-induced flooding and severe weather has resulted in economic losses of €2.9bn to Ireland from 1980 to 2013. The report warns that future damages would arise as average temperatures continue to rise.
With so many international insurance companies located in Ireland, Sustainable Nation Ireland is exploring the potential opportunity to develop a climate risk cluster of expertise based in Ireland.
As such, our fourth Breakfast Leadership Series will focus on the topic of climate risk, examples of climate risk insurance activity already ongoing in Ireland and discuss the possibility of Ireland developing an expertise in climate risk.
Panel members to be published shortly.
This breakfast series is hosted by our Sustainability Skillnet in partnership with McCann Fitzgerald.
