 AIRROC / EECMA Climate Change Symposium
September 6, 2018
Philadelphia, PA


AIRROC and EECMA (the Emerging Environmental Claim Manager Association) are pleased to present their 2018 feature co-hosted program which will take a comprehensive look at Climate Change.

There is a growing consensus among business and governments that climate change is a real and growing risk. The insurance industry is at the forefront of understanding the risks associated with this emerging risk. Catastrophic losses associated with severe weather events has amplified the attention on this topic as the World Economic Forum identified extreme weather event and failure of climate change adaptation among the greatest global risks.  There is a new wave of Climate Change related lawsuits filed against the oil and gas industry. This one-day symposium will focus on the many complex aspects of this important topic. The conference will include thought leaders on the science of climate change, policymakers, industry, legal professionals, technical consultants, and insurance professionals.

The program is currently under development.  Check back frequently for program updates.
