CRESTA zones were originally developed as a joint project of the Swiss Reinsurance Company, the Gerling-Konzern Globale Reinsurance Company and the Munich Reinsurance Company. Europa Technologies was part of the original team who brought the standard into the digital mapping era and has maintained a CRESTA zone map data product longer than any other vendor.

Insurance professionals need accurate and reliable maps and databases. In today’s times of climate change, demand has increased for location intelligence to manage risks and reduce exposure. Our CRESTA zones map data for the Philippines offers insurers an important basis for aggregated risk assessment, exposure management and reinsurance negotiation & reporting.

The Republic of the Philippines is an archipelago in Southeast Asia, situated in the western Pacific Ocean. The Philippines shares maritime borders with Taiwan, Japan, Palau9p Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and China. Only eleven of the 7,650 islands which make up the archipelago are inhabited. The capital city is Manila.
The earliest inhabitants of the Philippines were a series of Austronesian peoples. In the mid-sixteenth century, after “discovery” by Magellan, the islands were colonised by the Spanish, named in honour of King Philip II of Spain and became part of the Spanish Empire for over 300 years. The Philippines became a major trading hub in the Pacific.
After revolution in the nineteenth century, the Philippines was ceded to the USA in the early twentieth century. American control over the territories was exerted until Japanese invasion during WWII and in 1946, after liberation, the islands were declared independent.
The Philippines is now a unitary sovereign state, a constitutional republic with a presidential system, but has had a stormy relationship with democracy. The country is divided into seventeen regions, which for governance, are divided into eighty-one provinces. The exception to this is the Bangsamoro autonomous region.
Ethnically very diverse, the Philippines is home to 182 living languages. The official languages are Filipino and English.
With a newly industrialised economy, the Philippines has moved from an agricultural base to an economy led by manufacturing and services. Exports include circuits and office machinery parts. The business outsourcing industry and tourism are growth areas for the Philippines. It also has a wealth of mineral resources.
The culture of the Philippines is rich in diversity, with some distinct divisions due to the island nature of the country. For centuries, it has been a melting-pot of cultures. The architecture is a mix of styles, including Hispanic and more recently “modern American”. As the Philippines is situated on the Pacific “Ring of Fire” it is susceptible to earthquakes and typhoons, reflected in the use of building materials. The folk tradition in music, dance and literature remains important. The main sport is basketball.
On the world stage, the Philippines is a member of the United Nations and ASEAN.

Global CRESTA Plus

Global CRESTA Plus is our digital implementation of the CRESTA standard. Given a location in the Philippines, the product enables applications to look up the applicable CRESTA zone and then analyse/present aggregate risk across a portfolio. Applications can be further enhanced by adding a variety of natural hazard data sets such as earthquake locations, storm paths, meteorological, geological and insurance-specific statistical data.

Global CRESTA Plus can be licensed just for the Philippines, by continent or world-wide.
