Container module: The Inside Track // ESG
ESG
  • Climate change presents significant risk for the insurance industry on both sides of the balance sheet, and KBRA offers a new metric to help investors dimension an otherwise amorphous aspect of climate risk to specifically move beyond assuming the level of credit risk is related to total emissions.
  • Insurers can play a leading role in closing the protection gap by helping people plan to reduce the risk of disasters before they strike, and by providing financial help after, said Denis Duverne, chairman, Insurance Development Forum, and chairman of AXA, in an exclusive interview with Insider Engage.
  • As Russia’s invasion of Ukraine intensifies, the international conflict is disrupting global energy supply chains since Russia is one of the world’s largest oil exporters.
  • As Russia’s invasion of Ukraine intensifies, companies in the US, EU, and other regions are facing increasing stakeholder pressure to restrict services and product sales in Russia. In response, a growing number of corporations have taken measures to halt business there. Global corporate action on the Russia-Ukraine conflict underscores the growing role consumers are playing in international policy.

Diversity and Inclusion
  • Companies that fail to properly manage their diversity, equity and inclusion may face litigation and regulatory risk, said Julia Oltmanns, director of DEI Services for Zurich North America.
  • Insurers are increasingly making corporate social responsibility (CSR) and diversity and inclusion (D&I) touchstones for their philanthropy. This year’s Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF) Media Roundtable highlighted how insurers are engaging more fully with local communities in pursuit of these standards, while attempting to make a bigger impact by partnering with non-profit organisations.
  • For a long time diverse-owned companies have faced a number of challenges when it comes to accessing capital, however business diversity programs are making this a thing of the past, enabling diverse-owned companies to expand their network and unlock potential business opportunities.
  • Over the past two years US insurance companies' interest in integrating economic, social and governance (ESG) factors into their investment strategies has grown significantly.
