Insurance and financial services could have a positive influence on all economic sectors that have major impacts on our environment.
WWF and RSA are leading in-depth research into how the insurance sector in particular can help lower carbon emissions in China, both through increasing the use of renewable energy and being more energy efficient.
The research will provide a solid basis for the insurance industry to promote low-carbon solutions in China in the future and demonstrate how properly-designed insurance services can play a key role in sustainable business development.
The sweeping nature of climate change means it could have an effect on investment portfolios. Our aim is to work in partnership with all stakeholders in the investment process to understand how factors such as climate risk can be incorporated.
