Poseidon Principles for Marine Insurance: First Disclosure Report published

26th January 2023 | Print version

The first Annual Disclosure Report for Poseidon Principles for Marine Insurance (PPMI) has been published today. It is a landmark step forward for transparency in the maritime and insurance sectors toward decarbonisation. The data will act as a stepping-stone for the Signatories to engage their clients in a discussion about climate change, technology, and new risks.

On average, the Signatories’ portfolios are 12.7% above being aligned with reaching the UN maritime-goal of at least 50% reductions of the annual greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping by 2050, compared with their level in 2008. The second trajectory the Signatories track takes is more ambitious and has a goal of zero CO2 emissions in the middle of this century. The simple average score of the 100% CO2 emission reduction track is 20.8% above alignment.

As a Supporting Partner of the PPMI, IUMI is interested to learn from the various takeaways which have been made available in this first publication.
