Swiss Re Joins Chicago Climate Exchange

swissre.jpgAdding further clout to the United States’ only marketplace for greenhouse gas emissions, Swiss Re has joined the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX).

As a result, joining the CCX makes perfect sense for a company seeking to minimize its long-term risk. (Via Greenbiz)
