Sustainability in Insurance – Thematic Research

Sustainability is a key issue in the insurance sector both for its image and its future profitability. Insurance is one of the leading industries in the global economy, and therefore needs to be seen as a leader in the key issues within sustainability, such as climate change. Perhaps more importantly for the industry, the impact of climate change is already being seen, and is having a severe impact on profits. Severe weather events such as the Australian wildfires have cost insurers and reinsurers millions, and as the issue gets worse events like these will become more common. The situation makes claims significantly higher and consequently premiums harder to price.

Scope

Aon has identified the need for innovation and development of policies via its partnership with Oxfam to provide blockchain-based insurance to Sri Lankan farmers.

AXA, Chubb, QBE, and Aviva are among the leading insurers to explicitly state they will stop working with unsustainable businesses such as the coal industry by a certain date.
