International insurers and reinsurers launch "2017 Appeal on climate change"

Insurance Europe has today joined the International insurance and reinsurance industry 2017 Appeal on climate change, signed by more than 30 insurance and reinsurance associations from all over the planet.

The Appeal notes that the Bonn COP 23 and the Paris One Planet Summit are key steps to ramp up the fight against climate change. It says that decisions on concrete actions by governments and proper financing are necessary to honour the Paris agreement commitments and limit the rise in global temperature to below 2°C.

The Appeal also  reiterates the industry’s full commitment to contributing to the fight against global warming. This is done in a number of ways, including assisting in prevention and adaption or investing long-term in green and sustainable assets.
