The carbon markets represent a significant investment opportunity that will be a key new asset class requiring insurance protection. These markets will also introduce increasing liability for climate-related disclosures and management liability risks. This webinar will provide an overview of the carbon markets and the role insurance products can play, including: the lifecycle of a carbon credit, the different types of carbon projects and the unique risks associated with them, and the key stakeholders in the carbon markets. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the carbon markets, a familiarity with the emerging insurance products and opportunities for potential new products and be better able to discuss these risks with clients and prospects.
