Consultation on the SIF-IAIS Issues Paper on TCFD Implementation in Insurance

Supported by UNEP and working with the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (IAIS), the Sustainable Insurance Forum (SIF) has pioneered efforts to share knowledge on activities that can strengthen assessment of potential climate risks facing insurance markets and the oversight of such risks through supervisory practices.
The SIF-IAIS Issues Paper on TCFD Implementation within the insurance sector assesses the state of play across jurisdictions and provides options for supervisory action.
The draft Issues Paper will be open for public consultation in December 2019 and January 2020.
Join the webinar of UNEP’s Principles for Sustainable Insurance and the SIF.

  • Insuring the climate transition: The final report of UN PSI’s TCFD pilot project Feb 11 2021 2:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    UNEP's Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI)
    Over the past year, 22 leading insurers have collaborated under UNEP’s Principles for Sustainable Insurance Initiative (PSI) to pilot state-of-the-art approaches—particularly the use of climate change scenarios—to better assess climate-related physical, transition and litigation risks in the insurance business. The overall aim of this PSI project is to contribute to the development of consistent and transparent analytical approaches that can be used to identify, assess and disclose climate-related risks and opportunities in insurance portfolios in a forward-looking, scenario-based manner. Endorsed by Mark Carney, UN Special Envoy on Climate Action & Finance and the UK Prime Minister’s Finance Adviser for COP26, the final report captures the key findings of the largest collaborative effort by insurers—representing over 10% of world premium and USD 6 trillion in assets—to pilot some of the most challenging recommendations of the Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

  • Science-Based Target Setting on Biodiversity Feb 10 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The PRI and UNEP FI
    Many companies are already setting climate science based targets (SBTs) to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Companies are now also considering nature science based targets in order to operate within planetary boundaries.

    The PRI and UNEP FI are co-hosting this webinar with experts to discuss:
    - What are science based targets for nature?
    - How is a net zero emission target being applied and how does this compare with science based targets for nature?
    - What needs to be considered in a methodology?
    - What are the gaps?
    - How are companies setting biodiversity targets?

    Speakers include:
    Erin Billman, Executive Director, SBTN
    Chris Weber, Technical Director, SBTN
    Helen Crowley, Head of Sustainable Sourcing Innovation, Kering
    Additional speakers to be confirmed
  • Aligning finance for the net zero economy: new ideas from leading thinkers Feb 9 2021 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    John Elkington & Richard Roberts (Volans); Jakob Thomä & Anne Schoenauer (2DII)
    EIT Climate-KIC has partnered with UNEP FI to produce this ‘thought leadership’ series that aims to inspire financial actors worldwide to move from risk to alignment, challenge current assumptions around climate alignment and develop ideas and concepts on how alignment can best be achieved. We hope to encourage stakeholders that a proactive climate response is not only about disclosing risks, but also about investing in green opportunities that can enable the low emissions societies of the future. This series convenes innovators and industry experts to provoke discussion, challenge the status quo and guide the transformation of business and finance towards a sustainable future.
    UNEP FI and EIT Climate-KIC present the 3rd and 4th papers of this Thought Leadership Series:
    “#3. Innovation and Tranformation: What It Will Take to Finance Net Zero"
    The third paper in this series will be presented by Richard Roberts and John Elkington, who explore the fundamental shift in the purpose and practice of finance - as well as the policies that determine the "rules of the game" - required to align our economy with a 1.5°C Low Energy Demand (LED) scenario.
    "#4. Finance 2030: A Time Travel Exercise"
    The fourth paper is from Jakob Thomä and Anne Schoenauer, who present a thought experiment into the key characteristics that will define the finance sector in 2030 in response to the economic transition arising from climate risks, public health challenges and economic and societal transformation.

  • Financing a Resilient Future: Target Setting for Climate and Nature Recorded: Nov 12 2020 92 mins
    UNEP FI | Carbon Trust
    The Paris Agreement signalled an acceleration in the transition to a low carbon economy. Many institutions are already making ambitious commitments to making this a reality – but they also need ambitious emissions reduction targets that ensure the transformational action they take is aligned with current planetary needs. At the same time, the world hasn’t fully met any of the 20 biodiversity targets set by global governments a decade ago

    This webinar provides insights on next steps in target setting for climate and nature, how organisations are making ambitious commitments and implications for their businesses.
  • Insuring a Sustainable Ocean Economy: A Deep Dive for the Insurance Industry Recorded: Nov 10 2020 92 mins
    UNEP FI Butch Bacani, Dennis Fritsch, Cara Wilson | AXA XL Chip Cunliffe | Gallagher Daniel Fairweather | IUMI Richard Turner
    The ocean’s health and integrity is critical to providing oxygen, food and other resources; absorbing carbon emissions and heat; and building coastal resilience. However, it is under immense pressure from unsustainable development, including destructive fishing practices, carbon-intensive shipping, acidification and pollution. Modern-day insurance’s roots can be traced to the maritime industry, and the insurance industry’s relationship with the ocean economy continues to evolve. From shipping, fisheries and tourism; to aquaculture, energy, biotechnology and nature-based solutions for coastal protection and blue carbon, the insurance industry’s risk management, insurance and investment activities can play a key role in ensuring a sustainable ocean economy.

    Join leading insurers and the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) to discuss sustainability challenges and opportunities in the context of the 21st century ocean economy, and find out how to get involved in UNEP FI’s new Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Initiative to develop sustainable finance strategies and approaches to ocean-based industries.

  • Demystifying tobacco: Why and how insurers & investors are going tobacco-free Recorded: Oct 22 2020 57 mins
    Tobacco Free Portfolios & UNEP's Principles for Sustainable Insurance
    This year, tobacco has so far killed six times more people than COVID-19—and is on track to kill one billion people this century. Furthermore, cigarette butts are the largest single type of litter by count, and have become the number one form of plastic pollution in the ocean, surpassing plastic straws.

    As the world moves to protect global health, the climate and nature, a growing number of insurers, investors and banks are going tobacco-free. Many have signed the Tobacco-Free Finance Pledge as part of their sustainability commitment, and in support of the World Health Organization (WHO) Framework Convention on Tobacco Control and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

    At this global webinar by UNEP's Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI) and Tobacco-Free Portfolios (TFP), hear from insurance industry leaders, Denis Duverne, Chairman of the AXA Group, and Lars-Göran Orrevall, CIO of Skandia, on why and how their respective companies have transitioned to tobacco-free insurance and investment portfolios, as well as key insights from the WHO, PSI and TFP.
