In this IIL property webinar, Nigel and Neil outline climate-related physical and transition risks and look at relevant types of climate duties of care and litigation, including how these are evolving and emerging trends.

The speakers briefly outline the world’s carbon budget and why urgent action is needed to avert the worst impacts of climate change. They then unbundle climate-related physical and transition risks, how they interact with other types of risk, and the huge losses they could give rise to.

Building on this, Nigel & Neil outline the main categories of climate litigation, how causes of action are evolving, and emerging trends. The emphasis here is on the types of case that could impact insurers’ liability books. Finally, they propose ways in which insurers could manage this exposure.

Learning objectives:

  • How could climate-related physical and transition risks play out?
  • What are the main categories of climate litigation, and which should I be most concerned about?
  • What can I do to manage this exposure?
