Insurance industry working towards SDGs

Monday, October 5, 2015
The Microinsurance Network acknowledges that a number of our insurance members are already working on implementing the 17 SDGs, especially in leveraging risk expertise to create more resilient populations and improving access to insurance. Their work is highlighted in a SDG matrix for financial services developed by the UN Global Compact and KPMG and launched at the UN Private Sector Forum held on 26 September.
 
For example, Blue Marble Microinsurance, the International Cooperative and Mutual Insurance Federation (ICMIF), Swiss Re, Munich Re, AXA and Zurich Insurance Group contribute to extending the reach of microinsurance as a crucial tool for socio-economic development and enhancing resilience of low-income households.
