Below 2⁰C – Insurance for a low carbon economy
This report provides a strategic overview of the potential effects of the low carbon transition on the general insurance market. Vivid Economics and experts from the London School of Economics Grantham Research Institute were engaged by Lloyd’s to review the effects of decarbonisation scenarios on sectors and regions of the global economy, and the attendant opportunities and challenges this poses for the insurance sector in general and the Lloyd’s market in particular. The work focuses on the impact of transition and liability risks on general insurance, seeking principally to understand sectoral trends up to 2030, which will inform risks and opportunities over the next 3-5 years.
Swenja Surminski and Joana Setzer were members of the Research Project Team for this report.
