Insurers are no stranger to climate and extreme-weather risk. Our industry has had a financial stake in it for decades.

Presented by The Institutes Griffith Foundation in collaboration with the Insurance Regulator Education Foundation (IREF), the hour-long conversation will explore the climate risk landscape and how insurers are responding to it.

"Insurers are no stranger to climate and extreme-weather risk," Kevelighan stated, in Triple-I's response last year to a Federal Insurance Office Request for Information on the insurance sector and climate-related financial risks. "We may not always have talked about the issue in those terms, but our industry has had a financial stake in it for decades."

Joining Kevelighan on the panel, billed as Peril and Promise: Climate Risk and Resilience, will be two other subject matter experts:

  • Benjamin Collier, PhD, Assistant Professor, Risk, Actuarial Science and Legal Studies, Temple University
  • Michael Peterson, PhD, Deputy Commissioner for Climate and Sustainability, California Department of Insurance

The non-partisan and non-advocative webinar will be moderated by Frank Tomasello, JD, Executive Director, The Institutes Griffith Foundation. It is presented free of charge. Pre-registration is required.

To illustrate how insurers are leading on the issue of climate risk and resilience, Triple-I also has created products like its Resilience Accelerator and Resilience Ratings map. Both offer guidance to the public on ways to mitigate against climate-related risks.
