Statement from the UN Environment Programme on the Net-Zero Insurance Alliance

The Net-Zero Insurance Alliance (NZIA), which is convened by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), was launched two years ago. Since its launch the NZIA and its partners have developed the foundational concepts and frameworks to support its members as they work towards decarbonising their insurance and reinsurance underwriting portfolios. These include the NZIA statement of commitment, the NZIA white paper on net-zero insurance, the PCAF Insurance-Associated Emissions Standard, and the NZIA Target-Setting Protocol.

The NZIA is convened by the UN Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI): the UN Environment Programme-convened initiative is the largest collaboration between the UN and the global insurance industry. The commitment signed by the members of the NZIA is accredited by the UN Race to Zero and the alliance is a member of the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net-Zero.
