  • Moderator: Josh Landau, President, International Insurance Society (IIS)
  • Joan Lamm-Tennant, former CEO, Blue Marble and IIS Resident ESG Expert
  • Rowan Douglas, Head of Climate and Resilience, Willis Towers Watson and Operating Committee Chair, Insurance Development Forum
  • John Scott, Head of Sustainability Risk, Zurich Insurance Group

2020 was a year of retrospect across social, political and economic spectrums globally, inspiring a reexamination of priorities. Beyond social responsibility, insurers are acknowledging the value of stakeholder capitalism through Environmental, Social, and Governance strategies (ESG) that deliver shared value creation for customers, employees, shareholders and society. This panel of experts will explore how insurers are actualizing ESG by embedding these principles into core strategy across the value chain; how these strategies are resonating in the boardroom; and assess the impact of insurers serving as a conduit for building sustainable markets with better impact for society.
