Workshop "Climate Change and Insurance"
Vienna, Wed–Fri, September 4–6, 2024

Welcome

At this Workshop “Climate Change and Insurance” (CCI 2024) the main aim is to enhance understanding of climate change impacts on the insurance industry. Without proper management of its climate risks, the insurance sector is vulnerable and may simply collaps under the weight of underestimated claims - such a scenario would have catastrophic implications for business and society.

The three-day event CCI 2024 is designed to initiate and strengthen collaborations between practicing actuaries and academics, nationally and internationally. We encourage both - practitioners and researchers - for submissions related to the following themes, although any other topic addressing climate-related risks is also welcome:

  • Climate modelling
  • The role of actuaries in handling the climate change
  • Catastrophe risks and climate change
  • Impact of climate change on mortality
  • Pricing of climate change risks
  • Sustainable finance

The workshop starts with an introductory talk to Climate Change and Insurance and offers plenary & contributed talks.
In the framework of a panel discussion on the topic "Climate Change and Insurance: Past, Present and Future" we offer the conference participants a platform for discussions with a number of renowned experts.
An introductory mini-workshop on AI in Climate Risk will complete the program.
