The challenge

Sustainability and insurance

The following two questions will be posed;

1. As a student, what do you expect from the insurance sector in terms of sustainability?

2. What would you do differently if you were the CEO of a Dutch insurer?

What is your advice in the field of sustainability and the use of big data, taking into account the regulations that apply to the insurer. Support the advice with data (from public sources, for example).

The why

Why is this challenge important?

Society is facing major challenges. Climate changes are becoming more visible and the need to become more sustainable is crucial. Insurers play an important role in society's climate ambition and can help companies and consumers to become more sustainable.

Big data offers opportunities for the insurance sector to contribute to sustainability. From Europe, requirements are imposed on the insurance sector when it comes to sustainability. These regulations have an impact on future sustainability policy in the Netherlands.

About us

Verbond van Verzekeraars

The Dutch Association of Insurers is the advocacy group of damage and life insurers in the Netherlands. The Association represents the interests of its members and links them to the interests of society. More than 95 percent of all Dutch insurers are members of the Association. We have set the course to develop ourselves into an Open platform: A platform that connects insurers, stakeholders and organizations from both inside and outside of the sector. Together we want to create added value for customers, learn from each other and find answers to challenging issues that affect us all. Think of the impact of technological developments and data. Society is data driven and this also applies to the insurance sector. Also, industry expansion, changing customer behavior and social themes such as sustainability are very relevant. We take on the challenge of making everyone aware of the importance of a well-functioning insurance market: indispensable within the insurance sector and for society as a whole.
