Net-zero insurance is a recent concept and frameworks, definitions and methodologies are still evolving. This webinar will introduce the new paper Insuring the net-zero transition: Evolving thinking and practicesproduced by the Net-Zero Insurance Alliance (NZIA) to demystify, shape and advance net-zero insurance thinking and practices. It forms part of the Alliance’s engagement strategy and looks at potential insurance underwriting approaches to net zero, key challenges and next steps.
The Net-Zero Insurance Alliance is a group of over 20 leading insurers representing about 12% of world premium volume committed to address the net-zero challenge in the context of insurance underwriting portfolios. It 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.
