The UN Environment Programme’s Principles for Sustainable Insurance Initiative (PSI), is hosting an event that will amplify sustainability action and ambition for the life & health insurance industry in this UN Decade of Action. The event will be hosted by Vitality, a PSI signatory company, and will run from 10:00 to 13:00 BST on Wednesday, 21 June 2023. In-person participation is by invitation only. The event will be livestreamed on the UNEP FI YouTube channel.
In a post-COVID world increasingly impacted by climate change, nature loss, social inequality and the cost of living crisis, this event will feature the launch of a timely paper, “Health is our greatest wealth: How life & health insurers can drive better health outcomes and address the protection gap”. This paper is a collaborative effort by the PSI’s Life & Health Working Group—comprising 10 leading insurers and reinsurers from Africa, Asia, Europe and North America—co-led by HSBC Life and the UN, and supported by Ernst & Young LLP.
The programme will also include a CEO panel discussion, bringing together leading companies’ CEOs and other senior representatives from the insurance industry, in an engaging high-level panel discussion on the key sustainability challenges and opportunities for life & health insurers.
