,UNEP FI launches the Principles for Sustainable Insurance on the eve of the Rio+20 Conference to support the global meeting’s aims. The launch event is co-hosted by the International Insurance Society and the Brazilian Insurance Confederation. The launch marks the start of the UNEP FI Principles for Sustainable Insurance Initiative (the ‘PSI Initiative’) to promote the adoption and implementation of the Principles globally. The Principles will serve as the global framework for insurance companies to better manage environmental, social and governance risks and opportunities in their core business strategies and operations. They include concrete actions to enhance risk management and underwriting practices, stimulate innovative insurance solutions, and catalyse industry action on a range of sustainability issues such as natural catastrophe risks, climate change, ecosystem degradation, ageing populations and emerging health risks.
