About the event

The 1st of November marks the opening day of COP26. 25'000 leaders, from across the globe and every spectrum of politics and business, will meet in Glasgow to address the climate crisis. Ahead of the crucial gathering, we invite our clients, partners, investors, stakeholders and colleagues to a virtual 45-minute-dialogue to give particular attention to the COP26 insurance agenda.

Re/Insurance Leaders and the United Nations will discuss the newly formed Net Zero Insurance Alliance (NZIA) as one example of collaborative action taken by the industry to win the #racetozero. This alliance focusses on decarbonizing underwriting portfolios and we invite risk managers, underwriters, investors, regulators and other insurance ecosystem players to join this public online live dialogue.

This key dialogue is part of the #racetozero campaign and will be live telecast from Swiss Re Institute's Centre for Global Dialogue.
