[Webinar OpenFloor] Why to become a climate actuary? – 28 February 2024

On behalf of Gábor Hanák from KPMG Hungary, the Board of the Polish Actuarial Association has the pleasure to invite its members and members of the CEE actuarial associations to its complimentary „Open Floor” series webinar, „Why to become a climate actuary?”

About the lecture: 

The lecture will focus on why climate related risks stemming from the uncertainties related to climate change, would be a natural, new (emerging) and rewarding and attractive practice area for actuaries. After a short intro into the subject, setting the scene and the context, I will show some concrete cases where actuarial contribution can be helpful to and appreciated by various stakeholders (i.e. intended users of actuarial services) such as entities (including financial services companies like insurers), local and regional/global policymakers, governmental agencies and regional/international bodies of such bodies and NGOs. The cases will include the potential role of the actuary in climate scenario analysis and in climate related reporting.
