Thank you for taking the time to fill out this survey. Its purpose is to understand staff views regarding Marsh's contribution to global warming via the brokering of insurance for projects that expand the scale of the coal, oil and gas industry, including the Adani Carmichael coal project in Queensland, Australia, and the impacts climate change is having and will have on the company.

It is anonymous and takes three minutes to complete.

This survey is organised by Market Forces, an independent environment group that advocates for finance and investment to be directed away from activities that harm the environment and towards activities that protect and enhance it.

The preliminary results of this survey are now available.

  • Munich Re and Swiss Re warned at the end of 2017 that climate change threatens the entire business model of the insurance industry, due to actuaries being unable to model future risk based on past risk. In 2018 Insurance Australia Group and the NZ Reserve Bank both warned that large swathes of the globe are becoming uninsurable due to climate change.

  • Many major insurance companies, including Axa, Allianz, Chubb, QBE and Suncorp have started responding to increasing global warming risk by divesting their coal company shares and phasing out their underwriting of thermal coal.
