The Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI) and the Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB) held a joint webinar to discuss energy efficiency for sustainable development.

Energy efficiency is key to sustainable development, offering significant potential in fighting climate change, alleviating energy poverty, and mitigating air pollution. Despite its importance, investments in various sectors, such as real estate, transportation, and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) remain hindered by various barriers, including those related to risk. Our webinar delved into how banks and insurers can play a critical role in bridging the investment gap and promoting energy efficiency, not only through conventional means but also through innovative instruments and approaches.
