Innovation for Societal Resilience
Resilience is not just about withstanding shocks and disturbances, but also about adapting to a changing risk landscape. We partner with academic institutions and innovation hubs that further our understanding of the adaptive capacities that societies need to be resilient, for instance, by suggesting new ways of managing risks that traditional insurance models don't cover. The insights gained can increase the long-term resilience of people who are most exposed to the destabilising effects of risk.
Closer to home, we support projects that benefit communities near Swiss Re offices, giving priority to those that address important local challenges. As well as being integral to Swiss Re's corporate citizenship, these activities engage and inspire current and prospective employees.
