Sign-On: Joint Business Statement of Support for US Insurers Taking Action on Climate Change
In the face of the urgent need to address climate change across all sectors at the scale that the science says is necessary to mitigate the worst consequences, we need to address the ongoing financing of the fossil fuel economy. Over the past few years, insurance companies in Europe and Australia have recognized the need to stop supporting fossil fuels through their underwriting and investments and have limited their business with those sectors. In July 2019, Chubb became the first, and so far only, major US insurance company to announce a new fossil fuel policy out of climate concerns.

This presents an opportunity for the rest of US insurance industry, which by and large continues to support fossil fuels, to follow their peers, and in doing so, provide greener options to customers in the US market.

Every business is also an insurance customer. The Joint Business Statement of Support for the US Insurance Taking Action on Climate Change is intended to show support from the business community for insurers to take serious action to address climate change, specifically moving away from fossil fuels.

The sign-on deadline is December 31. Signatories will be given ample notice of the statement's public release and an opportunity to collaborate on media communications.
