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.

How to Activate the Topic of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Despite an increase in diversity policies and trainings offered by companies, organizations are still challenged to activate the topic of diversity and inclusion. This is because current strategies prioritize raising awareness over tangible action. In order to activate the topic of diversity and inclusion, if found to be a material topic for your company, diversity policies & trainings need to go hand in hand with inclusive, hands-on practices.

Tackling the Challenges in Visualizing Double Materiality

As of 2023, the EU Commission requires companies to apply the concept of “Double Materiality” as part of its new Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD). Companies that have not already done this, need to develop a sharp view on both short-term impacts as well as risks further on the horizon in order to guide their business and build resilience for climate change and other factors. In addition, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) announced updates to its Standards in which the process of a materiality assessment was also actively addressed. This article answers one of the main questions that therefore arises: how do you visualize your materiality matrix in line with the double materiality principle?

Updated GRI Standards: What Are the Implications for Materiality?

Last October, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) announced the biggest update of its standards since 2016. Beyond legal requirements, the GRI has been identified as one of the most comprehensive and internationally recognized sustainability standards setter for corporate reporting. Scheduled to be applicable by 2023, these changes require companies to increase their level of transparency and to dedicate further resources into non-financial reporting. One of the key updates is the introduction of sector standards, providing additional guidelines for comparability of companies from the same industries. Another important change in the GRI Universal Standards is the revised approach on how organization should conduct their materiality assessment. This article focuses on the proposed changes and what it means for companies which have selected the GRI Standards as their ESG reporting framework.
