Taking ESG to the next level: A sustainable future for the insurance industry

With the core of insurance revolving around managing risks, principles that are inextricably linked to environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria, the insurance sector has an understanding of ESG risks and their impact. However, with increasing expectations from stakeholders and customers alike, the industry needs to change. Read more below.

Insights into ESG in the insurance industry

The concept of ESG refers to a wide range of factors that influence the long-term performance and sustainability of businesses. A number of these factors are becoming increasingly important for risk management, investment strategies, product development, and general business practices in the insurance industry.


Investing in ESG-compliant insurance

It is also important to consider ESG factors when investing in insurance. As insurers seek to align their portfolios with sustainable and responsible practices, they increasingly incorporate ESG criteria into their investment strategies.

There has been an increase in insurance companies investing in ESG-themed funds, engaging with companies to improve their ESG performance, and divesting from industries that have high ESG risks, such as fossil fuel industries.
