The Utilities sector faces challenging times. Emerging risks that were on the horizon are now testing utility companies’ resilience and preparedness for the future. Marsh can bring together local and global solutions to help you manage this exciting risk environment.

The Utilities industry is undergoing a period of rapid transformation.

Delivering on the transition to a net-zero economy and firming up commitments and strategies to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals will be a challenge.

Consumers are demanding more from suppliers and requiring heightened innovation to deliver improved services. Achieving public confidence and affordability in the face of cost pressures will drive an increased focus on digitisation. Against a complex regulatory framework that is flexing to meet the needs of customers and the environment, anticipating and adapting to uncertainty and change will be critical.

We can advise you on risk exposures and insurance solutions to ensure you successfully achieve your objectives. Those businesses that can adapt and innovate will be the ones that thrive in this transformational era.
