Conference Call for ICABE 2022

Globally, the insurance industry is in a unique position when it comes to climate risk and sustainability as insurers are exposed on both sides of the balance sheet.

This conference deals with the role of the insurance industry in contributing to, and responding to, the risks that climate change has brought and will bring to ensure sustainability.

Many established insurance companies have invested heavily in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Data Services. Also, investing heavily in the automation of insurance products and services or have diversified to meet the challenging and dynamic environments and social needs.

ESG issues continue to increase in their significance and relevance to the Insurance Industry. Supply chains are more and more seeking evidence that firms they trade with have acceptable ESG approaches, and regulators and legislators are looking to introduce new requirements.

Therefore, we invite authors to submit theoretical and empirical contributions related to the above theme. Contributions may relate to Finance, environmental, social, regulatory issues etc.

Typical Contributions relate to (as an indicative list):
 The role and impact of/on insurance in tackling climate change
 The ESG Strategy: Culture, Coordination and Understanding the Next big Sustainable Lever
 Opportunities in the Green Revolution
 Climate Change: Present and Future Expectations
 The Impact of Climate Change on the role of the Risk Manager, the Actuary, and Internal Audit
 The Impact of Climate Change and Sustainability Measures on Compliance and Regulation
 Case studies from leading insurance companies on sustainable, Net Zero, futureproof operations.

All submitted contributions must be original, have not been previously published or been under consideration by other publishers. All papers must be written in English.

The aim is to develop discussions that will appeal to academics and researchers, CEOs and managers of private and public companies, specialists and consultants, personnel professionals, policy makers, and others interested in these issues. Therefore, we welcome contributions that advance theoretical and empirical research and improve the understanding of current issues in the above area. All contributions will be double-blind peer-reviewed and will be published in the conference proceedings and various journals.
