SCOR has signed up to align capacity to support the Climate Transition Pathway (CTP) solution, developed by Willis Towers Watson.
CTP is an accreditation framework that provides insurance companies and financial institutions with a consistent approach to identifying businesses with robust low carbon transition plans aligned to the Paris Agreement.
SCOR is the latest insurer to sign up to the CTP accreditation model, following Liberty Specialty Markets. It will provide help to organisations wishing to transition to a low carbon economy.
The pathway will also give companies the opportunity to access insurance capacity and capital to support their orderly transition and help them meet their low-carbon commitments.
Graham Knight, Global Head of Natural Resources, said: “At Willis Towers Watson we are committed to helping our clients in a sustainable way. Climate Transition Pathways was designed to help those organisations wishing to transition to a low carbon economy and we are absolutely delighted to see more insurers supporting the framework.
“Today’s announcement is another step towards ensuring we can provide continued access to insurance for companies committed to transition as well as a greater level of certainty around the future availability of risk capacity. By helping our clients in this way, we are helping to provide a sustainable future.”
Olivier Perraut, Chief Underwriting Officer Specialty Insurance, SCOR added: “Our conviction is that we, re-insurers and SCOR, in particular, have an essential role to play in insuring the energy transition.
“We believe this Climate Transition Pathway approach is an important way to support our clients in their own commitments to follow credible transition pathways as they transform their business model and align to the objectives of the Paris agreement.”
