Insurance Industry Understanding Climate Risks


“The insurance industry really has been out front of trying to really quantify and understand these risks for a couple of decades now,” said Steve Bennett, Senior Vice President of Verisk Climate. Insurance companies are trying to take the hazards and potential impacts of climate change and present them in terms of what the risk of any given event or hazard may be.
