BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

FM Global to provide climate mitigation credit to policyholders

climate change

FM Global said Tuesday its policyholders collectively will receive up to $350 million as a credit to help them invest in climate mitigation.

The resilience credit will be applied as a 5% premium offset against eligible FM Global policies with renewals or anniversaries between Oct. 1 this year and Sept. 30, 2024, the Johnston, Rhode Island insurer said in a statement.

The amount will be calculated based on eligible premium in effect 90 days prior to the renewal or anniversary date of the prior policy, FM Global said.

A $300 million credit allocated last year helped organizations implement mitigation efforts against wind, flood and wildfire that reduced the potential economic impact of those perils by up to $20 billion, FM Global said.

The insurer also introduced a suite of climate resilience products last year to help policyholders assess their exposures and prioritize investments in risk improvements.

“With the increasing frequency of disruptive events around the globe, our clients need the tools and resources to invest in risk mitigation,” FM Global President and CEO Malcolm Roberts said in a statement.
