Brief summary of organization’s risk management work:
Munich Re has been handling global risks for 128 years. Today, it possesses expertise and know-how in all fields of competence connected with the subject of risk. Acting responsibly means sharing that knowledge. The Munich Re Foundation enables Munich Re to fulfill this responsibility. People are ultimately at the core of what the foundation’s work is all about. The foundation’s task is to minimise the risks to which they are exposed. It clarifies issues and provides support, also in developing countries.
In this context, the areas in which the foundation can be actively involved are many and varied, encompassing education and training, science and research, disaster prevention, environmental protection, and public healthcare.
Munich Re funds conferences, cooperates on publications and supports other activities related to risk management (primarily insurance) in agriculture.
