Climate changes resulting from global warming cause natural disasters such as storms, heavy snow falls, droughts, and floods, and lead to severe losses in terms of human life and financial properties.
These changes also affect the ecosystem and human life, often causing outbreaks of infectious diseases that are hard to control. Hyundai Insurance recognizes this as a crisis and an opportunity at the same time, and is taking proactive measures through its newly established Hyundai Insurance Research Center.
