From extreme weather events to animal species, many threats to health, safety and prosperity are linked to climate and climate change. No wonder that these topics have been on Swiss Re's radar for two decades - or that climate is one of our four main areas of focus at the Foundation.
To us climate resilience doesn't only mean using resources sustainably. It also means responding flexibly to the realities of climate change that already confront many communities, especially low-income ones. We help them do both, for instance, by switching to solar and other clean energy sources, getting more out of farming without clearing forest and learning to live in a changed environment.
