‘Demand for climate resilience services has grown exponentially in recent years’, says global head

Zurich Resilience Solutions, the commercial risk advisory arm of insurer Zurich, has today (25 January 2023) partnered with climate solutions provider South Pole to provide new advisory solutions to clients.

The joint offering will provide businesses with solutions to help them define, plan and execute short and long-term climate resilience objectives and net zero goals.

Focusing on measuring physical climate risk and emissions, the solution will provide guidance to clients on how to reduce both.

Hanno Mijer, global head of Zurich Resilience Solutions, said: “Defining a deploying effective climate adaptation and mitigation strategies requires special knowhow and can be extremely complex and time-consuming, even more so for multinationals.

“Demand for climate resilience services has grown exponentially in recent years – collaborating with South Pole will allow us to address climate-related risks holistically by supporting customers on their net zero journey as well as resilience.”

Reputational cost

Renat Heuberger, chief executive at South Pole, added: “Companies that fail to demonstrate their progress in building resilience and reducing emissions will likely pay the price both reputationally and financially.

“But knowing where to start can be difficult – we are pleased to combine South Pole’s best in class climate advisory with Zurich Resilience Solutions’ expertise in resilience to steer corporate leaders toward effective mitigation and adaptation efforts – both for commercial success and climate protection.”
