• Heatwaves and the energy crisis discussed at inaugural Climate Change Clinic


    Following a summer of record-breaking heatwaves, hosepipe bans and a cost of living crisis caused in part due to energy security challenges, the climate change emergency is an unavoidable topic. Rebecca Lea explains the insurance and long-term savings perspective following our first ABI Networking Climate Clinic held this week.

  • What do the Bank of England’s CBES results mean for insurers?

  • Good COP, Bad COP? Insurers and the call to arms against climate change


    COP 26 had an air of energy, motivation and urgency about it that inspires cautious optimism, yet the scale of the challenge is daunting. Government policy, regulation and customer demands means that joining the race to net zero is no longer optional and insurers have a key role to play in both adaptation and mitigation. One of these roles is as investors in the transition: Solvency II and climate change will be the twin themes of our prudential regulation session at the ABI’s annual conference next year, which will be a timely opportunity to debate reform and the government’s investment objectives.
