Marsh @ COP27

Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt

November 6-18, 2022

As the clock ticks on the climate crisis, all eyes are on the global leaders at COP27, the United Nations climate conference. The stage has been set for an historic summit, with make or break decisions needed in order to capitalise on the closing window of opportunity the world has to stave off further climate change.

Over the next two weeks, the impact already felt by climate change will be reviewed; the actions needed will be outlined; and the call for both the public and private sector to step up will be made.

In our blog series, we will look at the role of insurance in ensuring positive change — including helping to ensure a smooth energy transition, underpinning finance for green infrastructure, and mitigating the costs of the increased climate-related risks we are still set to see.

Follow us on our journey through COP27, exploring how the insurance industry can play its part for climate action.
