Wired into Commercial Sustainability

A new world of risk requires a new approach to insurance which we at Willis call “Commercial Sustainability.” It’s based on two ideas:

  1. Insurance sits at the center of a company’s security and survival. It’s not just about coverage and claims.
  2. The only right way to look at a company is holistically – as something embedded in a community with stakeholders of every kind.

Sustainability is an envelope within which the safety of the company is secured. It’s achieved by anticipating and managing risks to which it’s exposed. WillisWire allows companies to tap into the latest expert insights on risk to help inform their risk management decisions.
