Climate change has significant impact on insurance carriers – and their customersMay 9, 20221 min read
For the past decade, Rich Poirier, president and CEO of Church Mutual Insurance Company, S.I.1 (a stock insurer), has been boldly calling attention to the growing impact of climate change on the insurance industry and its customers.
Simply put, rising global temperatures are fueling a rapid increase in adverse weather conditions nationwide, from epic wildfires to massive tornados, powerful hurricanes, torrential rains, damaging hail and devastating winter storms.
Rich and Church Mutual are committed to educating customers about the impact of this reality and what steps they should take to further protect their organizations and weather-proof their facilities as much as possible.
Rich is happy to discuss this pressing issue and Church Mutual’s focus on awareness, preparation and response as key steps to mitigate climate change’s impacts?
He can speak to:
- Innovative approaches to controlling wildfires, including mitigation strategies and fire-retardant gel.
- Sensor protection technologies that provide alerts when a facility’s temperature or moisture level exceeds acceptable ranges.
- Industry efforts by the American Property and Casualty Insurance Association (APCIA) and the Insurance Information Institute (Triple I) to help policyholders and the general public better prepare for the long-term impacts of climate change.
