There are few industries that have seen its financial results as directly impacted by climate related losses as the insurance industry in recent years. The industry is a key stakeholder in the transition; Insurers are already contributing significantly to the transition to a low-carbon economy. On the liabilities side, more insurers are factoring climate risk into their underwriting decisions. On the asset side, many companies have investment strategies that support climate mitigation.

In this podcast, we will focus on the role of insurance, the impacts of climate change and how it can support the energy transition.
