The global (re)insurance industry plays an essential role in facilitating efforts to drive the transition towards a low carbon economy. This seminar will explore sustainability and decarbonisation ambitions across a range of sectors pivotal to a successful global low carbon transition and highlight how the insurance industry can proactively support its customers in their journey. This includes carbon-intensive sectors which need to act to decarbonise as well as sectors such as offshore wind which are vital in providing low carbon power for the world’s growing energy needs. For each sector, the global pathway towards a lower carbon footprint will be outlined, the challenges on that journey that require solutions and support and what this means for risk professionals explored, and how insurers can fast-track necessary change through products and services, alongside directing capital towards green investments, highlighted.
The seminar is open to all Airmic members and will include an introduction to environmental, social and governance activities at Lloyd’s and the Lloyd’s climate action paper addressing greener industry, greener transport and greener energy
