Our re/insurance solutions help address key environmental and social challenges. We focus on mitigating climate risk and advancing the energy transition, building societal resilience, and driving affordable insurance with digital solutions to advance access to insurance.
By managing risks and covering losses, re/insurance creates stability and enables economic growth. However, some environmental and social challenges may undermine sustainable progress if left unaddressed. Helping our clients and society tackle such risks is a key part of our commitment to sustainability and of our vision to make the world more resilient.
Building on our efforts in recent years, our focus is on the three overarching 2030 Sustainability Ambitions we have defined in our Group Sustainability Strategy:
- Mitigating climate risk and advancing the energy transition
- Building societal resilience
- Driving affordable insurance with digital solutions
We develop our solutions as part of our established risk modelling and underwriting activities or by creating innovative new products in close cooperation with our clients and partners.
Thus, our solutions frequently include:
- Public-sector partners: Besides direct insurers and corporate clients, we also develop risk transfer solutions for, and in cooperation with, governments and various public-sector organisations.
- Index-based insurance products: We are a pioneer in creating innovative insurance solutions that use an index to determine payments.
- Insurance-linked securities (ILS) or catastrophe bonds: We are a leading developer of these products, which enable cedents to transfer large risks to the capital markets.
Across our efforts, we seek to develop solutions that improve access to insurance protection, especially in emerging markets. If governments and communities are financially protected against such risks as windstorms, earthquakes, drought and flooding, they can better cope with the immediate consequences of a disaster.
Just as importantly, our solutions help create the conditions for sustained social and economic development because they protect investments, allow governments to stabilise budgets and give people the financial stability required to build and maintain businesses.
