ESG in Insurance Conference
ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) or - as often referred to -, sustainability, is a structural change of a particularly strong magnitude, changing the way that both the financial industry and real economy work. In the recent European history, analysts say, ESG’s impact may be only comparable with the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989.
As society is facing increasingly interconnected and complex ESG challenges, the insurance industry cannot be a bystander and must play its role, mostly using its expertise in risk management.
Also, keeping in mind that insurance industry is Europe’s largest institutional investor, with an investment portfolio exceeding EUR 11 trillion, incorporating ESG criteria in its investment policies is of utmost importance.
Overall, ESG proves to be an extremely complex concept, with several ramifications impacting different areas of insurers’ activity. The conference will focus on some of the main aspects that incorporating ESG goals may have on insurers’ business.
IIF 2023 – ESG IN INSURANCE Conference is a top-level environment for exchanging business insights on the future outlook for the insurance industry and how it will be shaped by sustainability, technological, regulatory and distribution drivers. The event is completely organized for and by professionals, ensuring the highest quality program in all aspects.
