Description Representing a growing global network of leading insurance industry organisations, ClimateWise aligns its members’ expertise to help society respond to the challenges it faces from climate change. ClimateWise’s focus is on addressing the climate-risk protection gap: the growing divide between total economic and insured losses.

The ClimateWise Principles were launched in September 2007 by HRH The Prince of Wales, who had previously called on the insurance industry to offer a more pro-active and collaborative effort to help reduce the risk of climate change for us all. Members are from Europe, North America and Southern Africa and all members commit to action, individually and collectively, against the ClimateWise Principles: Support climate awareness amongst our customers; Incorporate climate change into our investment strategies; Reduce the environmental impact of our business; Report and be accountable.
