What we are doing
RSA and WWF are working together to strengthen the insurance industry's understanding of the link between environmental and insurance risk through joint research, emerging risks briefings and product development.
Climate change threatens marine environments, water supplies, energy and biodiversity. A series of regular reports published by RSA and WWF aim to improve understanding of these risks among the global insurance industry and encourage action.
As climate change opens up new areas of the world’s oceans to commercial opportunities, RSA and WWF are working to protect three marine areas under threat in the northern hemisphere.
Changing weather patterns mean flooding and drought are more frequent than ever. Research between RSA and WWF is exploring ways to cut water use in the home and how natural solutions can reduce the risk of flooding in towns and cities.
The insurance industry can play an important role promoting more sustainable behaviour in society and the economy. RSA and WWF are investigating how the industry can help remove the barriers facing renewable energy generation and assessing the business case for integrating environmental risks into investments and pensions.
RSA and WWF are helping to raise awareness among the insurance industry about the consequences of climate change and the steps it can take to limit its impact.
