Climate change is making insurance unaffordable for Australians
Each year, Australia is experiencing more and more extreme weather events.
Insurers use the term “catastrophe season” to describe the period between October and February where we see the majority of severe weather events occurring. Things like hailstorms, floods, high wind, heatwaves leading to bushfires.
In recent years we’ve seen catastrophe season run for 2-3 months longer, with some of the most devastating weather events in a generation.
Unfortunately, the increasing frequency of these events results in insurance businesses raising their prices to be able to afford to help their customers in times of need.
Sadly, this is making insurance unaffordable for an increasing amount of Australians.
This Friday we’re striking to push the government to invest in renewable energy and First Nations solutions that care for our country
To protect our planet, and slow the increasing prices of insurance for all Australians, we’re striking to support the School Strike 4 Climate on Friday the 21st of May.
We want the government to put climate back on the agenda by investing more in renewable energy and First Nations solutions that care for our country, protect our planet and help stop climate change.
We’ll be joined by over 300 Australian businesses representing over 15,000 workers as part of Not Business as Usual.
Our insurance experts will still be here for you if you need
For our customers, please don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. There will still be staff available to support you in your time of need.
Please feel free to join us and thousands of other voices on Friday the 21st of May in your local capital city, and make a stand against climate change.
