Webinar: Implementing TCFD recommendations in insurance industry investment activities
March 3 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am UTC+0
The Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) has issued recommendations relevant to the insurance industry’s insurance and investment activities. This webinar by UNEP’s Principles for Sustainable Insurance Initiative (PSI) will focus on investment portfolios and the key findings of two pioneering TCFD pilot projects by UNEP’s Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), spanning listed equity, corporate debt and real estate. Understanding climate-related physical and transition risks and opportunities in investments is critical, particularly since the global insurance industry, as institutional investors, collectively represents over USD 30 trillion in assets under management. Separately, the PSI is currently carrying out a ground-breaking project to pilot the TCFD recommendations in the context of insurance portfolios.
