Key publication in 2021: Economics of Climate Change
In 2021, the Economics of Climate Change publication presented Swiss Re’s Climate Economics Index – a stress-test of climate risks on 48 countries, representing 90% of the world economy.
The report found that the world stands to lose as much as 18% of total economic value from climate change if temperature increases stay on the current trajectory, and both the Paris Agreement and 2050 net-zero emissions targets are not met.
The publication was Swiss Re’s most downloaded publication to date and was covered by the New York Times, The Guardian, and CNN.Download
