Net-zero data may be imperfect, but time is tight

Published in: Risk, Environment, Investment, Climate change and sustainability

Even if the data to work towards net-zero emissions goals is imperfect, time is too pressing not to begin, insurers are warning.

Panellists discussing ESG data and analytics at InsuranceERM’s Insurance Risk and Capital EMEA virtual conference, on 1-2 December, believe “a main hurdle now is time”. 

The panel – which includes Marisa Parmigiani, head of sustainability and stakeholder management at Unipol Group, and Rachel Delhaise, head of sustainability at Convex Insurance – will consider how work on measuring emissions in the supply chain could be a game changer for insurers.

They will also discuss challenges still remaining in applying net-zero data to different types of cover – sometimes underwritten for the same client – and how to tackle the difficulty of “a client that maybe is ‘a bad investment case’, but is ‘a decent client’ on the underwriting side”.
