UNEP FI’s Principles for Sustainable Insurance to lead at Global Insurance Forum

15 June 2015 | New York, USA

The UNEP FI-created Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI), the largest collaborative initiative between the UN and the insurance industry, is set to present on key insurance industry initiatives at the Global Insurance Forum of the International Insurance Society in New York. The PSI, backed by insurers representing about 15 per cent of the world’s premium volume with US $9 trillion in assets under their management, will speak about the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda at a plenary session. The Forum will include a dedicated day at the UN headquarters for insurance leaders and UN officials to address sustainable development challenges and opportunities, from climate change and disaster risk, to financial inclusion and aging populations.
