Climate Change

Climate Change is a subject that concerns us all

For more than 40 years, Munich Re has been dealing with climate change and the related risks and opportunities for the insurance industry. Our approach to coping with this challenge is holistic and based on the following pillars: risk assessment – insurance solutions – asset management.

Mission & Vision

Munich Re’s mission and vision

Together, our mission and vision define the framework of our climate strategy. This makes clear our resolve to address climate change both in the short term and in the long term.

Strategic approach

Risk assessment

The consequences of climate change and the resultant changes are various in nature. For more than 40 years, we have been analysing the impacts of climate change in different areas:

Risk transfer solutions

By developing and establishing risk transfer solutions, Munich Re actively contributes to combating climate change.

Asset management

Our asset management strategy adheres closely to sustainable investment standards. To a certain extent, we also invest directly in renewable-energy assets.

Leading initiatives

As part of our climate strategy, we are engaged in partnerships and initiatives that are focused on adaptation to climate change and contribute directly to climate protection.

Corporate Responsibility

We are integrating ecological, social and ethical factors into our core business and investments to a greater extent. In addition, we are successively making our business operations carbon-neutral.

Viewpoints

Climate change entails an ongoing updating of knowledge and findings. We adopt positions on relevant topics.
