Tackling climate change together

About the project

Our climate is changing. The consequences – such as rising temperatures and extreme weather events – affect us all. We need to address this.

Munich Re and ERGO have extensive expertise and have developed solutions aimed at adjusting to climate change and mitigating its consequences. Tackling these challenges together with partners is a key component of the Group’s corporate responsibility strategy.

It is now time to take corporate responsibility to the next level: Munich Re and ERGO are actively driving forward projects focusing on adjusting to climate change and sustainable innovation – contributing experience, expertise and financial support. You can find more information on these pages.
