Insurance Ireland and Milliman look forward to welcoming you to our second CRO forum of 2023.
This event will focus on sustainability and climate related risk issues facing insurance companies. This will include practical advice based on current market practice, with insights into CBI expectations in this area.
The session will cover both the “outside in” and “inside out” aspects of climate and sustainability issues and regulatory requirements, including the CBI’s Climate Risk Guidelines and the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD).
Following this event you should be able to benchmark your company against current market practice and have the information you need to take the next steps on your company’s climate and sustainability risk journey. This event is aimed at CRO’s.
