21 February 2024 — Daniela GHETU

ESG risks remain at a medium level, insurers’ median exposure towards climate-relevant assets hovers around 3.3% of total assets, while their investments in green bonds are steady at around 7% of total green bonds outstanding, the latest Insurance Risk Dashboard published by EIOPA shows. The ESG IN INSURANCE Conference to be held in Vienna, on 16 April, will touch several aspects of ESG risks for insurers, but also of the way insurers are relevant for increasing society’s resilience overall.

The first part of the event will be dedicated to the regulatory and supervisory framework in the ESG context. With different approaches, from regulatory to practice, participants to the conference will hear from:

  • Petra Hielkema, Chairperson EIOPA,
  • Hartwig LÖGER, General Manager (CEO), Chairman of the Managing Board, VIG - Vienna Insurance Group, Austria,
  • Helena VIÑES FIESTAS, Commissioner of the Spanish Financial Markets Authority, Chair of the EU Platform on Sustainable Finance,

as well as from a panel of discussions reuniting a diversity of stakeholders.

IIF 2024 – ESG IN INSURANCE Conference is a top-level environment for exchanging business insights on the future outlook for the insurance industry and how it will be shaped by sustainability, technological, regulatory and distribution drivers. The conference will focus on some of the main aspects that incorporating ESG goals may have on insurers’ business, both as risk undertakers and strategic investors. Incorporating ESG goals both in insurance underwriting and shaping insurers’ investment policies, especially in challenging context created by the climate change are among the main topics, as well as the regulatory approach.

The conference works will be chaired by Prof. Karel Van HULLE, Professor, KU Leuven - Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany.

More details on the conference, as well as online registration are available on the conference website.
