For over a quarter of a century, we’ve been a committed leader in researching and modeling atmospheric hazards and the economic impact of catastrophic storms.

By being a positive force for change by creating and sponsoring numerous risk mitigation efforts, we believe we can:

  • Increase the resiliency of storm-exposed communities by introducing them to the most effective mitigation techniques and products
  • Reduce the frequency of claims and the severity of the economic impact of storms

Our efforts include:

  • The RenaissanceRe Risk Sciences Foundation
  • Risk Mitigation Leadership Forum Series
  • Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS) Research Center

Our Foundation was created to support advanced scientific research in natural catastrophes, the development of risk mitigation and adaptive techniques to safeguard communities, efforts that reduce the economic turmoil following disasters, and organizations that preserve coastal and other risk-exposed habitats. The Foundation promotes education, preparation, adaptation and mitigation of catastrophic risks.

Our award-winning series of 14 forums featuring world-renowned speakers have been attended by over 4,500 disaster safety representatives. These invitation-only events bring together emergency responders, scientists, policy-makers, academics, and private sector representatives to advance natural hazards risk mitigation efforts and awareness. Our forums to date are as follows:

  • Climate Change: Response and Resilience Leadership Forum (November 2019 in New York City, NY)
  • Community Recovery and Resilience Leadership Forum (October 2018 in Kansas City, MO)
  • Improving Natural Catastrophe Resiliency: Insurance vs Intervention Forum (November 2017 in London, UK)
