Product Description: Climate Change Edition

Web Version (log-on) and API

1. General

1.1 Munich Re's Location Risk Intelligence Platform is a software as a service solution (SaaS) capable to visualize and process natural hazards and climate risk data as defined in the various data Editions. The Location Risk Intelligence Platform is offered in three subscription plans with different functionalities as Business, Corporate and Enterprise. Client chooses one of the three subscription plans.

1.2 The Climate Change Edition of the Munich Re Location Risk Intelligence delivers climate change-related results (scores and analyses) for specific requested locations.

1.3 The Climate Change Edition's results are estimates based on Munich Reinsurance Company's own or licensed data. The estimates can be used by the Client as a decision-making aid. MR Service cannot therefore pledge or guarantee, either explicitly or implicitly, the completeness or accuracy of information that it has properly compiled.

1.4 Based on the Edition's results, three types of scores are available.

NATHAN Hazard Scores              Munich Re's NATHAN Hazard Scores for the twelve (12) major perils (Earthquake, Volcano, Tsunami, Tropical Cyclone, Extratropical Storm, Hail, Tornado, Lightning, Wildfire, River Flood, Flash Flood and Storm Surge) per asset/location. In a portfolio view, the proportional risk distribution within the portfolio to the respective hazard score is displayed.
NATHAN Risk Scores Munich Re's NATHAN Risk Scores for Overall, Earthquake, Storm and Flood are provided for a single asset/location. In a portfolio view, the proportional risk distribution within the portfolio to the respective hazard score is displayed
Hazard and Risk Score Display Results can be displayed as "Zone" or "Traffic Light" score. Zones represent a peril-specific classification of the respective hazard and vary between four (4) and seven (7) Zones. Traffic Light represents a consolidated and harmonized view with five (5) scoring categories over all hazard perils combined supporting the comparability of different hazards next to each other
Climate Hazard Scores Munich Re's Climate Hazard Scores for eight (8) perils, current plus four (4) different projection years (2030, 2040, 2050 and 2100) and four (4) different climate scenarios (SSP1-/ RCP 2.6, SSP2-/ RCP 4.5, SSP3-/ RCP 7.0, SSP5-/ RCP 8.5) per location/asset.
