Sedgwick launches climate resilience solution

Sedgwick has introduced a climate risk and resilience programme designed to address the impact of climate-related losses. The multidisciplinary solution – provided by Sedgwick and EFI Global, the company’s forensic engineering, fire investigation and environmental, health and safety consulting division – includes property resilience assessments, environmental consulting, loss adjusting, and repair and restoration services.

Tom Simoncic, president of property and international at Sedgwick, said: “Industries and organisations worldwide are facing increasing challenges associated with climate-related risks and losses. Our new climate resilience solutions will help clients prepare for weather-related risks, protect their investments, resolve property losses, and recover from damage.”

The programme focuses initially on assessing future risks. Sedgwick’s experts analyse climate risk data and conduct site inspections to create a comprehensive property resilience assessment determining infrastructural durability and including cost estimates, savings calculations and measures addressing potential climate-related concerns.

In the event of damage due to a climate-related catastrophe, Sedgwick mobilises its global teams to resolve claims and restore infrastructures. The company has property loss adjusting teams around the world specialising in complex losses and commercial and residential property damage. Additional services – including building consulting, contents adjusting, repair and mitigation, forensic engineering, environmental consulting, fire investigations, temporary housing and business relocation – are also available.
