Media alert - Home buyers must factor in climate change

The Climate Institute, in partnership with consumer group CHOICE, is launching a report on how the home insurance industry is pricing extreme weather risk.

5 June 2014

The study, Buyer Beware: Home Insurance, Extreme Weather and Climate Change, offers a preliminary analysis of premiums, policies, and insurability. It finds that homeowners and homebuyers are often, unwittingly, caught in a failure of the market and of governments to reveal information about the risks of extreme weather and climate change.
The report and all related materials are available at:
  • John Connor, CEO, The Climate Institute
  • Alan Kirkland, CEO, CHOICE
  • Karl Mallon, CEO, Climate Risk & author of the Buyer Beware report
  • 9:30am, Thursday 5 June
  • The Domain – directly behind NSW Parliament Sydney
