Insurance to meet the challenge of the climate transition

An R&D programme carried out in partnership with Imperial College London 


An R&D programme on the transformation of the insurance business faced with the risks arising from the transition.


Enable insurers to identify:

  1. The effects of climate change and the environmental transition on their activities;
  2. The means available to them to adapt to climate change and contribute to the transition.


  1. The design of innovative insurance products (e.g. parametric insurance, pandemic insurance);
  2. The building of statistical models to assess physical and transitional risks;
  3. The study of ways to manage catastrophic risks (e.g. reinsurance, alternative risk transfer markets).
