Ernst Rauch

Chief Climate and Geo Scientist
Munich RE Group


Ernst was appointed Munich Re’s Chief Climate and Geo Scientist in 2018. Ernst joined Munich Re's Geo Risk Research Department in 1988. Initially his work focused on earthquake risk analysis and the development of earthquake simulation models. Since the early 1990s his area of responsibility shifted increasingly to the analysis and modelling of meteorological and climatological risks.

In 2008, Ernst took on the responsibility of steering all Climate Change related activities in the Munich Re Group with focus on risk management, business development and asset management topics. Ernst became head of the newly established Munich Re think tank and strategy unit Corporate Climate Centre (CCC), which also served as a central entry and coordinating point to Munich Re on renewable energies.

Since August 2017, Ernst’s responsibility was expanded to also include Munich Re’s business development activities with public and supranational organisations in which he leads the newly created Climate Change Solutions Department in Munich Re´s Reinsurance Development Division.

Ernst studied at the Institute for General and Applied Geophysics at the University of Munich from 1981 to 1986 and continued his research work for another two years.

    Sustainable Finance: Wie sollte der Übergang zur klimaneutralen Industrie finanziert werden?

    Die Dekarbonisierung des Industriestandortes wird nur mit sehr hohen privaten Investitionen gelingen können, ergänzt und flankiert durch massive öffentlichen Anstrengungen. Die Entwicklung und Fertigstellung neuer Produktionsanlagen, neuer Netzinfrastrukturen für Strom, Gas und Wasserstoff sowie grüner Energieerzeugungsanlagen und Kraftstoffe erfordern weitreichende, riskante unternehmerische Entscheidungen, für die seitens des Bankensystems und des Kapitalmarkts auch externe Finanzierungen bereitgestellt werden müssen.
