Response provided to COP21 announcement

Following the announcement of an agreement to limit global warming at the 2015 Paris Climate Conference (COP21), Michaela Koller, director general of Insurance Europe, said:

“Europe’s insurers welcome the momentous progress which has been made at COP 21. As emphasised during Insurance Europe’s recent target two degrees campaign, tackling both the causes and effects of climate change will be one of the defining issues of our time. Therefore, it is incredibly important that the momentum gained through this agreement is maintained and that governments take steps to limit global warming and to prepare their societies for the effects of climate change through better adaptation.”
