As the world wakes up to the challenges of climate change, there is increasing demand for resilient assets. The building/construction sector generates 38% of global C02 emissions, something that has come under intense public and investor scrutiny lately. This is leading to pressure to use innovative and sustainable building materials. Meanwhile, supply chains will come under scrutiny where negative ESG traits are likely to weigh on the perceived ESG-readiness of an organisation.
This session looks at how the insurance industry views organisations which demonstrate clear ESG-related targets and measurable metrics, and asks if the insurance market is ready to offer capacity for the necessary innovation.
