Insurance Industry Climate Change Roundtable Summary

Following the March 2015 R!SE U.S. Initiative Launch in Boston, the Green Ribbon Commission (GRC) will convene a roundtable of insurance companies and other stakeholders in September 2015 to explore how best to advance changes to property insurance practices that will help increase resilience in the Boston, New England and national markets.

The Boston roundtable will concentrate on severe weather events amplified by climate change including storm surge, precipitation-based flooding, sea level rise, extreme heat and wind events. While other perils (e.g., earthquakes, man-made events, and pandemics) may potentially impact Boston, the Roundtable’s initial focus is on not on these related perils.
