For 25 years, 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
- RenaissanceRe Wall of Wind
- 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.
We invest in cutting-edge weather risk research like the RenaissanceRe Wall of Wind so we may help our clients and storm-exposed communities better understand their vulnerabilities to storm hazards and, ultimately, help build safer, more resilient communities.
The RenaissanceRe Wall of Wind was launched in 2007 as a public-private partnership with the International Hurricane Research Center at Florida International University. It revolutionized wind engineering research by replicating the effects of Category 3 Hurricane winds and rain on full-scale residential structures and building components a laboratory environment.
The RenaissanceRe Wall of Wind has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Discovery Channel, ABC World News Tonight, and USA Today.
Our award-winning series of 12 forums featuring world-renowned speakers have been attended by over 4,000 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.
