An Analysis of New York Domestic Insurers’ Exposure to Transition Risks and Opportunities from Climate Change
The New York Department of Financial Services (DFS) and 2 Degrees Investing Initiative (2DII), an independent, non-profit think tank working to align the financial sector with international climate goals, are hosting two webinars for New York domestic insurers to introduce the report “An Analysis of New York Domestic Insurers’ Exposure to Transition Risks and Opportunities from Climate Change” issued on June 10, 2021 by DFS in collaboration with 2DII.
Insurers are encouraged to invite their third-party asset managers to the webinars.
Session 1: Overview of the Aggregate Report
The first webinar will be held on Monday, June 21, 2021, and will provide an overview of the report, including methodology used to analyze insurers’ exposure to transition risks, New York domestic insurers’ aggregate exposure to transition risks, and investment-related strategies that insurers can consider to mitigate their transition risk exposure.
Session 2: Introduction of the Individual Report
The second webinar will be held on Monday, July 12, 2021, and will discuss how insurers included in the analysis might use the individual reports that were generated by 2DII and are housed on an interactive webpage. Each insurer will receive an email containing a unique link to access its individual report. Insurers are encouraged to explore the webpage prior to the webinar.
