TCFD Alignment Lessons from the Insurance Industry

As more and more organizations are embarking on the TCFD journey and with the proposal for updating the ESRS being submitted which will incorporate alignment with TCFD, the extent to which organizations will be held accountable for integrating the recommendations will only increase. This article outlines why it is important for insurance companies to be aware of and develop an understanding of climate-related risks and opportunities, provides best practice examples of insurance companies implementing the TCFD recommendations, and suggests three tips for closing the gaps in TCFD alignment.

Activating Materiality on Climate Mitigation & Adaptation in Insurance

More than a quarter of the world’s 2,000 largest publicly-traded companies have committed to a net-zero strategy, but do all of these companies have clear action plans in place to deliver on them? Finch & Beak’s forthcoming benchmark study on the European insurance industry dives deeper into how this sector is moving towards decarbonization. A preview of this work will be shared during the upcoming ESG Acceleration Webinar on Tuesday 1 March. The webinar also features a real-life case from Storebrand – the Nordic long-term savings and insurance company that is working to have net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across its investment portfolios by 2050.
