Global Finance and Environmental Politics:
MetadataShow full item record
Summary This article outlines how insurance companies have so far responded to climate change. Such change threatens the viability of much of their business, by disrupting the actuarial data on which insurance risks are calculated. At the same time, insurance companies are an important component of global finance, and thus their political?economic power has led many observers to suggest that their involvement in climate politics is encouraging from an environmentalist point of view. The article critically analyses whether such optimism is justified.
