Benchmarking the insurance industry’s performance on the SDGs (Morning)

Presented by

UNEP Principles for Sustainable Insurance

About this talk

UN Environment Programme’s Principles for Sustainable Insurance Initiative (PSI) and the World Benchmarking Alliance (WBA) are carrying out this global webinar to better assess the insurance industry’s contribution to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We will introduce the initial conceptual framework for the financial system benchmark that the WBA is developing, with a particular focus on the role of the insurance industry in contributing to the achievement of the SDGs. We invite the insurance industry to join other actors—financial institutions, regulators, companies and civil society—in shaping the development of this benchmark.

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.
