Insuring for Sustainability:  Why and how the leaders are doing it

Versions: French(2.5MB) Turkish(7.5MB) Today, the insurance industry faces the great challenge of coping with a rapidly changing risk landscape, one from which global sustainability issues have emerged, and continue to emerge. The risks that these issues entail are serious, while the opportunities, largely untapped. It is therefore insightful, as a starting point, to look at what leading players are doing in addressing some of the most challenging global sustainability issues, and to recognise the vital role the insurance industry can play. While the report is instructive and highlights case studies of best practice, it is not meant to provide ready-made solutions. Its primary aim is to provide illumination by imparting knowledge and a deeper understanding of the issues. We believe that this aim is a critical first step towards finding solutions to the serious risks of today, and uncovering the opportunities of a sustainable tomorrow.
