Corporate social responsibility has changed aspects of the risk transfer industry over time, but it is now becoming more important than ever for re/insurers to understand its wider consequences, Laurent Montador of CCR tells Intelligent Insurer.
What does corporate social responsibility (CSR) mean to you?
As a reinsurer and also on a personal level, my feeling is that global warming will continue apace with greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In other words, the planet would suffer irreversible damage if this trend were to expand.
About half of the cumulative human CO2 emissions between 1750 and 2011 have occurred over the past 40 years. And in the entire history of humanity, we have never emitted as many GHGs as we did between 2000 and 2010.
