Insurance 2040: Rethinking risk in the age of climate change

Webinar - February 5th

When change happens, it can happen fast. One of the lessons of the Covid-19 crisis is the importance of identifying the risks and opportunities ahead of us. Faced with accelerated climate warming and declining biodiversity, the environment is probably one of the biggest challenges facing society over the next decades. In a live webinar organized by the AXA Foresight Team, a panel of strategic foresight specialists, climate expert and practitioner will discuss the long-term transformations likely to occur, possible pathways to 2040, and the role the insurance industry can play to anticipate and adapt to these changes.
