Implementing TCFD recommendations in insurance industry investment activities

Presented by

UNEP FI

About this talk

The Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) has issued recommendations relevant to the insurance industry’s insurance and investment activities. This webinar by UNEP’s Principles for Sustainable Insurance Initiative (PSI) will focus on investment portfolios and the key findings of two pioneering TCFD pilot projects by UNEP’s Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), spanning listed equity, corporate debt and real estate. Understanding climate-related physical and transition risks and opportunities in investments is critical, particularly since the global insurance industry, as institutional investors, collectively represents over USD 30 trillion in assets under management. Separately, the PSI is currently carrying out a ground-breaking project to pilot the TCFD recommendations in the context of insurance portfolios.

United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is a partnership between United Nations Environment and the global financial sector created in the wake of the 1992 Earth Summit with a mission to promote sustainable finance. More than 240 financial institutions, including banks, insurers, and investors, work with UN Environment to understand today’s environmental, social and governance challenges, why they matter to finance, and how to actively participate in addressing them. UNEP FI’s work also includes a strong focus on policy – by facilitating country-level dialogues between finance practitioners, supervisors, regulators and policy-makers, and, at the international level, by promoting financial sector involvement in processes such as the global climate negotiations.
