MS Amlin commits to net-zero

MS Amlin Underwriting has confirmed the business will achieve net-zero by 2050, for all aspects of its operations. This would include Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, and apply across all investments and underwriting operations.

The board also announced today it has enhanced its sustainability governance, with a multi-disciplinary sustainability committee overseeing the development and delivery of a broad sustainability strategy.

This adjustment to governance coincides with the appointment of Amir Sethu, MS AUL’s head of sustainability and ESG to the Managing Committee of ClimateWise, a leading Insurance sustainability network, to join Martyn Rodden the company’s director of strategy and transformation, who already sits on the ClimateWise Advisory Council.

MS AUL is also adopting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a framework for its sustainability agenda.

Johan Slabbert, CEO, MS Amlin Underwriting Limited, said: “As a global re/insurer with a network of international clients and partners, we are well placed to support and influence our clients’ journeys to net-zero, as well as being acutely aware of our place in the world and the responsibility we have to take decisive action to help tackle increasingly complex problems. We also see these challenges as a catalyst to stimulate innovation and commercial longevity, strengthening collaborative efforts towards a sustainable and resilient future.”
