Insurtech Australia to hold ESG event

We only have one week until Insurtech Australia's face-to-face event about creating resilience and sustainability.

The event, to be held in Sydney on August 24 (Wednesday), aims to discuss the current status of environment, social, and governance (ESG) in the Australian insurance industry and insurtech's role in ESG initiatives' implementation.

“Insurtech has a meaningful role to play. Insurtech is helping to connect risk capital with new and previously uninsurable risks, and in-turn, reducing the protection gap. Insurtech is providing better early warning systems and natural catastrophe propagation mapping to drive smarter loss prevention and stronger resilience,” Insurtech Australia said on its website.

  • Binuo Erth, managing partner at Vellum Australia, where she seeks to positively impact the financial, environmental, and social performance of tangible asset portfolios;
  • Tobias Grimm, senior manager climate risks at Munich Re;
  • Simon O'Dell, managing director of Insurtech Gateway Australia; and
