Insuring the net-zero transition: Evolving thinking and practices

Presented by

UN Environment Programme’s Principles for Sustainable Insurance Initiative

About this talk

A white paper produced by the Net-Zero Insurance Alliance. This paper outlines the evolving thinking and practices via the work of the Net-Zero Insurance Alliance (NZIA), a group of over 20 leading insurers representing about 12% of world premium volume, to address the net-zero challenge in the context of insurance underwriting portfolios. The NZIA is a UN-convened and member-led alliance that supports its members as they work towards decarbonising their underwriting portfolios by individually setting science-based intermediate targets and reporting on their progress annually and publicly. The NZIA also advocates for and engages in governmental policies for a science-based and socially just transition of economic sectors to net zero. Speakers: Butch Bacani, Programme Lead, UNEP's Principles for Sustainable Insurance John Scott, Head of Sustainability Risk, Zurich Insurance Group Lucy McCracken, Senior Manager, Group Public Policy & Sustainability, Aviva Sheri Wilbanks, Head of P&C Climate and Sustainability, Group Risk Management AXA

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.
