About the course

It is the key topic for all of us. How can we ensure we can undertake our business today in a way that will not compromise the ability of future generations to meet their needs? How can we be sustainable in our business practices?

A commitment to sustainability is increasingly expected by your clients and your investors, and is seen as a crucial driver of long term value creation. But it is not easy. Sustainability requires careful management and understanding. It applies right across your organisation, from investment to underwriting, from product development to operations.

The Swiss Re Sustainability Client Programme provides you with an ideal entry point into thinking how you implement sustainable business practices. Drawing on decades of experience and specialisation, our experts will talk you through the challenges they have overcome and the opportunities they have realised. Working in groups, you will be able to undertake exercises challenging you to realise your own solutions and to develop your own business case.
