UNEP FI’s Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI), the largest collaborative initiative between the UN and the insurance industry, jointly hosted a Roundtable at the Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue on Insurance 2030: Policies and partnerships for sustainable development on 11th and 12th May. The Roundtable convened insurance leaders, policymakers and stakeholders to begin the essential process of developing the strategic framework to harness the full potential of the insurance industry for sustainable development through to 2030. It proposed a suite of policy and partnership options that would strengthen the alignment between the insurance industry and sustainable development, and form the basis for a set of “Insurance Development Goals”. Key speakers included the UNEP Executive Director, Mr Achim Steiner.
