Insurtech and ESG: Creating Resilience and Sustainability

 

(SYDNEY – In-Person: Wednesday, 24th August 2022)

 

Want to know more?

The insurance industry has long been in the vanguard of understanding and managing risk and has served as an important early warning system for society by amplifying risk signals. Through loss prevention and mitigation, by sharing risks over many shoulders, and as major investors, the insurance industry has protected society, shaped markets and underpinned economic development. Today, the risk landscape is rapidly evolving, spawning new and complex risks that threaten our increasingly scarce nature-based assets and undermine our common future.

The insurance industry plays a fundamental role in sustainable development, which is not a choice, but the only option. And the message is loud and clear – insurers are communicating strong risk signals stemming from a wide range of environmental, social and governance issues – from climate change, biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation and water scarcity to poverty, emerging manmade health risks, ageing populations, child labour and corruption’ – Achim Steiner, United Nations, Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director, United Nations Environment Programme.

Free-market forces have been ineffective in mitigating the negative outputs of industry. Directors and executive leaders from all industries now join insurance in the fight to remedy this imbalance.

Insurtech has a meaningful role to play. Insurtech is helping to connect risk capital with new and previously uninsurable risks, and in-turn reducing the protection gap. Insurtech is providing better early warning systems and natural catastrophe propagation mapping to drive smarter loss prevention and stronger resilience.

At this event, we partner with Insurtech Gateway Australia and Envest to discuss the current status of ESG, the role of corporations in driving sustainability, and the critical role insurtech can play.

Speakers:

  • Binuo Erth, Managing Partner at Vellum Australia, where she seeks to positively impact the financial, environmental and social performance of tangible asset portfolios,
  • Tobias Grimm, Senior Manager Climate Risks at Munich Re, and
  • Simon O’Dell, Managing Director of Insurtech Gateway Australia, and
  • Danica Bunch, Strategic Engagement & Investor Relations of Insurtech Gateway Australia, as the Moderator

 

Join us at 5:30 pm Wednesday, 24th August. We look forward to seeing you there in person!

Mobility of the future – Ownership vs Access

 

(ADELAIDE – Wednesday, 17th August 2022)

 

With the rise in demand for more flexible car ownership models, how will this change impact our mobility systems and how we design our cities?

Over the past century, private car ownership has been pivotal to how cities have evolved, allowing access to increased employment, education, and recreation opportunities.

Today, driven by new technologies and lifestyle preferences, the market for transport vehicle ownership is changing. With an increasing demand for options to access cars without needing to own one, Mobility as a Service offerings (including shared user models and shared vehicles/technologies) are set to become commonplace. But what needs to be improved for greater uptake and what impact is this going to have on our mobility systems and its users?

Join us as we discuss this topic in a uniquely interactive event, where you’ll be invited to participate in the conversation with experts from the mobility field.

Following the event, you’ll have the opportunity to network with the panelists and other members of the ecosystem.

This event is a collaboration between Stone & Chalk, RAA, and Insurtech Australia.
