Robert Muir-Wood, Chief Research Officer, RMS, recently participated in the fourth event in The New Statesman series: Beyond COP26: Remaking the Global Economy as part of a panel discussion on The Role of the Global Re/insurance Industry in Supporting the Road to Net Zero.
The global re/insurance industry has a crucial role to play in achieving climate neutrality through both their underwriting strategy as well as their investment portfolios. How are re/insurers leveraging their superior risk management expertise, claims data and advanced modelling capabilities to support clients in their transition to net zero? Are existing products fit for purpose? How can the re/insurance industry assist governments and regulators in their ability to better understand, quantify, and rigorously combat the impacts of climate change? What are the challenges involved when embedding carbon-related risks into net zero insurance frameworks? Where will the future of climate change products move to and how must they evolve to deliver on net zero ambitions?
