Climate Risk: Sustainable Insurance at Sustainability Live

Sustainability LIVE: Net Zero offers essential opportunities to hear from the world’s leading experts including Microsoft, Polestar, General Motors & more

As climate change continues to cause long lasting global impact, countries, individuals and companies turn their attention to their own carbon footprint. Sustainability is no longer an additional element of strategy, but is expected to be embedded in wider company practises.

As insurers continue to develop strategies to manage climate related claims, brokers also need to look internally to their own sustainability efforts. InsurTech Live Virtual 2023 saw The Climate Risk Forum with Jayakumar Venkataraman, Managing Partner, Europe, Financial Services and Insurance at Infosys, Linda Freiner, Group Head of Sustainability at Zurich Insurance Group and Claire Van der Zant, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Shieldpay come together to discuss topics including:

  • How the insurance industry is currently assessing and quantifying climate related risks
  • The role of insurer tax in improving risk assessment and underwriting processes in the face of climate change
  • The importance of weather forecasting — including products, solutions and technology — in developing cover
  • Technology developed to address climate related risks
  • Collaborative efforts or partnerships between insurers and insurance companies to tackle climate related challenges
  • The role of data in supporting underwriters for the future of climate related cover
  • Future trends in climate risk
