Zurich – NIBA Climate Risk Report 2010

This report contains the findings of a survey of insurance brokers (with more than 600 participants) about their perceptions of climate change. In the summary of the survey, Zurich states that "Nearly 40 per cent of brokers feel the risks associated with climate change have increased, this could be due to the severe storms brokers have personally experienced across Australia in 2010. Brokers are looking to the insurance industry, second only to the Government, to help educate them and their customers. Brokers have a base of understanding but are asking for more information from us to guide their discussions with clients."
