Thank you for taking the time to fill out this survey. Its purpose is to understand staff views regarding W.R. Berkley's contribution to global warming via the underwriting of expansionary coal, oil and gas projects in its marketplace, 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. 1. Do you believe that it is in the insurance industry’s and therefore W.R. Berkley's best interest to limit climate change as much as possible, due to climate change’s worsening of extreme weather around the world?*YesNoUnsure2. Were you aware that W.R. Berkley underwrites fossil fuel projects, the main drivers of climate change?*YesNo3. Do you think that W.R. Berkley should stop underwriting projects that expand the coal, oil or gas industries?*YesNoUnsure4. In 2018 W.R. Berkley announced that it would avoid investments in companies that had more than 30% of revenue from thermal coal mining in order to “position itself and its clients to thrive in a low-emissions economy, and to support and accelerate the transition [away from fossil fuel]”. Do you think W.R. Berkley should also extend this policy to its underwriting operations?*YesNoUnsure5. Since December 2018, seventeen of the world’s biggest insurance companies have publicly ruled out underwriting the Adani Carmichael coal project. This includes Lloyd's syndicates AXIS Capital, Canopius, QBE and Aspen (which is a current insurer of the project, but committed to no renewals once its role was revealed in the media). This project involves building the biggest black coal mine in Australia in an as yet untapped coal basin. Do you think that W.R. Berkley and WRB Underwriting should join these companies and rule out insurance for the Adani Carmichael coal mine/rail/port project?*YesNoUnsure5B. In the past year, global insurers like Zurich, Munich Re, and AXIS Capital have ruled out insuring the Trans Mountain oil sands pipeline in Canada. However, Lloyd’s syndicates are currently underwriting the highly controversial project, which poses major risks to Indigenous rights, the global climate, and local ecosystems. Do you think that W.R. Berkley should join these companies and rule out insurance for the Trans Mountain oil sands pipeline?*YesNoUnsure6. Would you like to see W.R. Berkley progressively phase out the underwriting of fossil fuels?*YesNoUnsure7. Confirmation: I am a W.R. Berkley/WRB Underwriting staff member*YesNo8.
