Together for a more sustainable future

Bringing a more sustainable future closer 

In the face of the single greatest threat our world has ever faced, there is critical work underway within the Lloyd’s market, the wider insurance industry and governments to drive the response we need. 

From sharing complex risks to insuring the energy transition, to unlocking promising product innovation in the Lloyd’s Lab and all our work helping communities adapt and rebuild, we’re bringing a more sustainable future closer.

Climate action can’t wait

Responding to the climate crisis is at the top of our agenda. 

To meet this critical challenge, we have created the market’s roadmap to an urgent but orderly transition to net zero. We are focused on where we can have the greatest impact as a market and committed to a net zero underwriting position by 2050 at the latest, as well as supporting the companies who operate in our market to achieve their own environmental governance plans.

Bringing leading experts together

The impact of climate change is complex and far-reaching. An effective response requires collaboration. 

We are working with experts across industry, academia and think tanks to help insurers and clients understand, mitigate and manage these risks.

Sharing risk insight

We are dedicated to sharing the insight, expertise and solutions that will help drive decarbonisation in key high-carbon industries such as energy, transport and construction.

We are working with the market to power climate-focused innovation at every step of the product development journey.

Lloyd’s Lab

The Lloyd’s Lab brings together cutting edge InsurTechs, start-ups and ideas, with the expertise and experience of the Lloyd’s market to create new and better insurance products, at pace.

Lloyd’s Product Launchpad

The Lloyd’s Product Launchpad connects entrepreneurs with underwriters to develop and road-test new products, balancing the need for oversight with the risk of not innovating fast enough.

Lloyd’s Futureminds

Lloyd’s Futureminds was a bootcamp for product innovative, where up-and-coming talent learned how to turn an idea into a customer-facing product, ready for validating, pitching and proof-of-concept.

Pioneering insurance solutions

Our work directly connects to the biggest challenges facing mankind, the risks brought to Lloyd’s become more complex and fascinating as we develop the solutions to ensure a safe and sustainable planet.  

Lloyd’s has a long tradition of working with pioneers opening up new territories, from marine trade to space exploration. In 2022 we had the opportunity to sponsor and host an exhibition that explained the risks space debris poses to the new generation of satellites we’ll depend on for communications and climate data. Find out more about the event and how the Lloyd’s market is supporting the mission critical clean-up of such a challenging environment.

New challenges require new ideas

Our Disaster Resilience Framework for Climate-Vulnerable Countries is pioneering a new public-private investment approach to protect the places most at risk of climate catastrophe.

Accountability drives action

Insurance has always had a social purpose - working together to protect everyone. 

That’s why being a responsible business is so important to us.

Our ESG strategy

Our purpose drives everything we do: from the products we develop, to the culture we create and the research we produce. But we also have specific plans in place to make sure we deliver the societal impact our purpose demands of us. These are our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) plans.

We’ve committed to embedding these principles and commitments in our market, in order to support our climate, culture and communities.
