The pandemic has accelerated change in so many different ways. Having been faced with an existential threat, we've become more sensitive to other significant threats, and the need for resilience. It's moved the sustainability agenda to the heart of strategic decision-making. There is much greater focus now on the potential impact of sustainability risks, but also a growing awareness of sustainability opportunities. The insurance market is acutely aware of these risks and opportunities, but what about the impact of the pandemic on management and employees?

Our first in a series of Dentons podcasts on Sustainability "Have you considered the key regulatory and sustainability risks caused by COVID-19 and the impact they may have on your firm?," looks at

  • The key regulatory risks
  • The responsibilities of senior management for staff wellbeing
  • Regulatory expectations in this environment
  • Emerging issues for insurers

Over the next few months, we're going to be looking at this Sustainability agenda and how it impacts the insurance market and we will consider a range of topics including:

  • Climate change
  • Digitalisation and innovation
  • Stakeholder capitalism
  • Diversity and inclusion
  • Corporate governance
