Bermuda Climate Summit 2022
Leading the Charge in Climate Risk Finance
The Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA), in partnership with the Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers (ABIR) and KBRA, welcomes climate thought leaders to Bermuda, the world’s risk capital, for a two-day, invite-only climate summit, hosted at the exclusive Rosewood Bermuda, located along the stunning coastline of Bermuda’s Castle Harbour.
Bermuda is already the world’s risk capital and is now looking to establish itself as a world capital for climate risk finance, the most adjacent vertical to our key market strengths: re/insurance, Insurance-Linked Securities (ILS), and financial services expertise. Bermuda not only has many of the world’s leading experts on weather-related catastrophes already based here in our globally significant property catastrophe reinsurance market, but we also have a financial services regulator, in the form of the Bermuda Monetary Authority, which understands the importance of climate concerns.
You should attend this event to connect with senior policymakers, leading scientists, NGO-heads, and business leaders, who will all be sharing their unique insights and solutions for the world’s biggest challenge, climate change. If you are an entrepreneur, or start-up, with an amazing idea that will change the world, please let us know.
The event will consist of an opening welcome dinner, keynote lunch, informative panel presentations, roundtables, a solutions showcase, networking opportunities, and a drinks reception (displaying local signature cocktails).
Guests are encouraged to bring their families and stay the weekend, to enjoy the five-star facilities, and all that the island has to offer including walking nature tours, Twizzy tours, golf, deep-sea fishing, cave adventures, Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) tour or a Nonsuch Island expedition. There is so much to discover!

The Bermuda Climate Summit is a two-day event. This year’s theme is “Leading the Charge in Climate Risk Finance”.
