We were delighted to welcome our clients, insurance experts, investors and (re)insurers to the Insurance Forum organized by Natixis and Oddo BHF on May 21.
This event was devoted to the question “how is sustainability disrupting the (re)insurance sector?” and provided an excellent opportunity for stakeholders to share their expertise and experience on managing climate risks and to discuss the innovative risk transfer solutions they offer for their clients.
The financial sector is at the heart of the economy and the insurance industry plays an important role in promoting economic, social and environmental sustainability – acting as a risk manager, an insurer and investor –. Insurance companies can also be seen as having a social remit by contributing to build a more resilient, inclusive and sustainable society.
The insurance sector has initiated a deep transition phase. Today, the industry mainly considers sustainable development as a way to reduce the risks it is managing while creating new business opportunities with its clients.
Regulators and rating agencies are also evolving to integrate sustainability (through environmental, social and governance criteria) and will lead and move ahead together with insurance industry.
The conference also provided insight into changes made by insurers to comply with the Paris Agreement and address the goal of limiting the rise in global temperatures to 2 degrees.
