Climate change is resulting in more frequent natural disasters, causing damage to homes, businesses and infrastructure at an unprecedented rate, which means challenges as well as potential business opportunities for insurers. Meanwhile, insurers and reinsurers – as risk managers as well as asset owners and investors – will play a key role in delivering the COP 26 agreements. In view of this background, we hold this event:

  • To engage industry experts after COP26 and discuss how the insurance industry can help deliver on the Paris Agreements, Glasgow Climate Pact and UN SDGs;
  • To identify where insurance and reinsurance can contribute to mitigating against climate change and to provide systemic resilience in China and the UK and in third countries; and,
  • Create commercial opportunities for UK and Chinese companies around climate risk modelling, climate risk insurance, green insurance, insurtech and related business lines in China.
