Munich Re has been handling global risks since 1880. Today, it possesses expertise and know-how in all fields of competence connected with the subject of risk. Acting responsibly means sharing that knowledge. The Munich Re Foundation enables Munich Re to fulfil this responsibility. People are ultimately at the core of what the foundation’s work is all about. The foundation’s task is to minimise the risks to which they are exposed. It clarifies issues and provides support, also in developing countries. The Foundation's work addresses major global challenges: the fight against poverty, environmental and climate change, water as a resource and risk factor, demographic development and disaster prevention – and supports people in risk situations.
