Munich Re, a global provider of reinsurance, primary insurance, and insurance-related risk solutions, selected Verisk’s global risk analytics business, Verisk Maplecroft, to help it enhance human rights due diligence across the entire enterprise.

Using Verisk Maplecroft’s Human Rights Risk Indices, which identify exposure to 31 civil, political, and labor rights at national and subnational levels in 198 countries, Munich Re will upscale its ability to undertake global operational risk assessments, alongside factoring the data into its underwriting and investment decisions.

Verisk Maplecroft has been measuring and analyzing human rights risks for more than 15 years. Its data has been used by multinationals managing human rights risks in their operations and supply chains and by asset managers and banks assessing and addressing their human rights risk exposure across complex global investment and lending portfolios. Adoption by insurers is the next step, the company said in a press release.
