In light of the growing relevance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues for marine insurers, IUMI decided in 2021 to establish an ESG Working Group (WG). The group is in charge of developing a mid-term and long-term work plan, strategy and vision for IUMI’s approach on ESG issues. The WG identifies key ESG topics which are specifically relevant to the global marine insurance industry. The purpose of the group is to educate IUMI members and raise awareness about ESG related trends and developments relevant for marine insurers. The ESG WG’s focus is to work on tangible and specific topics with direct relevance for IUMI’s membership.
