Insuring a Sustainable Ocean Economy:

A Deep Dive for the Insurance Industry

10 November, 2020

 

 

About the webinar 

The ocean’s health and integrity is critical to providing oxygen, food and other resources; absorbing carbon emissions and heat; and building coastal resilience. However, it is under immense pressure from unsustainable development, including destructive fishing practices, carbon-intensive shipping, acidification and pollution. Modern-day insurance’s roots can be traced to the maritime industry, and the insurance industry’s relationship with the ocean economy continues to evolve. From shipping, fisheries and tourism; to aquaculture, energy, biotechnology and nature-based solutions for coastal protection and blue carbon, the insurance industry’s risk management, insurance and investment activities can play a key role in ensuring a sustainable ocean economy.

Join leading insurers and the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) to discuss sustainability challenges and opportunities in the context of the 21st century ocean economy, and find out how to get involved in UNEP FI’s new Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Initiative to develop sustainable finance strategies and approaches to ocean-based industries.
