We were pleased to host Insuring the Net Zero Transition which was part of our COP Talks series. This series built on the themes and ambitions of COP27, which was be held in Sharm El-Sheikh on November 6 - 18. The financial services industry is an integral player in the quest to achieve a net-zero economy and to support broader sustainable development goals, and our COP Talks will cover some of the toughest yet most important issues facing the industry.
As businesses around the world seek to improve energy efficiency, build climate-resilient infrastructure, develop smart cities and transportation networks, green the manufacturing sector and promote sustainable agriculture, the insurance industry has an key role to play—and an unprecedented opportunity to support clients in both mitigation and adaptation to the impacts of climate change. With Net Zero insurance definitions and methodologies continuing to evolve, what products are being developed to manage transition risk, and what new tools will underwriters need to develop as they think through how to insure the innovative technologies needed for global decarbonization?
