The UNEP FI Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI) Initiative, UN leaders, government ministers, and industry leaders launched an ‘Appeal on Climate Change’ calling for the success of COP21 negotiations in early December. The call came at the 7th International Insurance Conference, organised by the French Federation of Insurance Companies (FFSA), and focused on the themes of climate change and financial regulation. The Appeal expresses the world’s insurers and reinsurers hope that an agreement to limit global warming to 2C by the end of the century will be reached. An important gathering of insurance industry leaders and regulators and public policymakers, the 7th International Insurance Conference exemplifies how the public and private sectors can work together to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon and climate-resilient economy.
