Demystifying tobacco: Why and how insurers & investors are going tobacco-free

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.

  • Financing a Resilient Future: Target Setting for Climate and Nature Nov 12 2020 2:00 pm UTC 90 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 Nov 10 2020 2:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    Butch Bacani, Programme Leader, UN Environment Programme's Principles for Sustainable Insurance Initiative
    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.

  • Implementing Holistic Impact Analysis: Early Adopters, Updates & Guidance (PM) Recorded: Oct 29 2020 93 mins
    UNEP FI | Positive Impact Initiative
    In April 2020 UNEP FI launched two ground-breaking tools: the Bank Portfolio Impact Analysis Tool and the Corporate Impact Analysis Tool. The Tools’ unique holistic methodology enable banks to understand the actual and potential positive and negative impacts associated with their business across the spectrum of environmental, social and economic issues. While the Portfolio Tool enables a top-down portfolio level analysis, the Corporate Tool enables a bottom-up review of financial institution’s main and systemically important clients.

    After six months of 6 months implementation by practitioners, UNEP FI releases a detailed User Manual as well as the first updates to its in-built country needs assessment framework, one of several unique in-built resources of the Tools.

    Join us on 29th October for an interactive walk-through of the tool, featuring the experiences and learnings of the Tools’ early users.

  • Aligning finance for the net zero economy: new ideas from leading thinkers Recorded: Sep 2 2020 80 mins
    Ben Caldecott (Oxford University) | Dennis Pamlin (RISE) | Kirsten Dunlop (Climate-KIC) | Eric Usher (UNEP FI)
    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.
    “1. Achieving Alignment in Finance"
    The first in this series will be presented by Dr Ben Caldecott, who explores what climate alignment means for financial institutions, the barriers faced by financial institutions wishing to align their portfolios, and finally taking a more granular look at what alignment might mean for various dimensions of financial practice across asset classes.
    "2. Transformations Required to Deliver 1.5°C and Global Sustainability"
    The second paper is from Dennis Pamlin, who takes a look at the actions necessary to deliver a 1.5°C society and how the roles of economic and financial stakeholders need to transform in response to the 4th industrial revolution.

Las 78 entidades bancarias que fueron parte de este estudio pertenecen a 11 países de la región. La muestra de estudio representa el 54% de los activos totales del mercado de América Latina y el Caribe (ALC).

UNEP FI
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.
