Our homes can be our greatest investment and protecting our homes against climate change has become more important than ever.
Our changing climate poses risks to our natural and built environments. Swiss Re in a global analysis of insurance risk said to “expect climate risks to raise global property premiums by 33-41% between 2020 and 2040”. The potential increase was deemed a direct consequence of our changing climate.
Our Climate Insights property report provides easily understood information on change to risks for your current or a future property. The report includes robust and actionable information for residential property owners, tenants and investors to enhance their property’s climate resilience.
Since its inception in 1912, and with the support of our Charities team TG Macarthy Trust continues to help New Zealand communities by awarding grants to not-for-profit organisations. Read about what the trust is getting up to, almost 120 years after it was established.
As part of a summer series, we are planning on running some top 10 lists for the best foods/places/activities in Christchurch/Canterbury.
Examples could be best summer foods in the region (ice cream, fruit etc), best wineries to visit, activities to try (adventure park, swim spots etc) or anything else that you enjoy to do in our backyard.
Please leave submissions of your favourite summer foods/places/activities and where to find them below in the comments, or by emailing email@example.com
