CCR Group: how ambitious investment helps fight climate change

The re/insurance industry has a real opportunity to drive a positive shift around global warming change via ESG strategies, says CCR Group’s Sébastien Jallet.

As part of one of the industries most exposed to climate change, a number of re/insurers are at the forefront of taking action to tackle it with environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) investment programmes, according to Sébastien Jallet, chief investment officer at French state-owned CCR Group.

The industry can be ambitious on ESG investment, said Jallet, particularly as climate change is top of the agenda for many businesses right now.

“The re/insurance industry is working to understand ESG, as it relates to investments, and to implement ambitious ESG policies. Moreover, the insurance industry is perhaps the most exposed to climate risks, which today have the most developed criteria for investors to assess their choices, until social taxonomy—an EU-wide standard defining socially sustainable activities or companies—emerges.”
