Resource and Environment Practice

The social, business and financial worlds are increasingly being affected by environmental risks, the likelihood of future changes and the measures taken by governments to try to deal with them. As long-term risk managers such developments are of crucial interest to actuaries. The Resource and Environment practice area works to identify the implications for actuaries and their clients and help in the development of appropriate responses.
