Indian Insurance and Sustainable Development

In collaboration with the British High Commission in New Delhi, India, Earth Security Group involved leading Indian insurance companies to identify business innovations and policy partnerships that can help the insurance sector to play a more prominent role in building India’s resilience to climate change in the energy and agriculture sectors.

As part of the project, ESG partnered with the General Insurance Council of India (GIC) and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industries (FICCI), to convene regulators and insurance companies, as well as leading Indian companies in the energy and agriculture sectors. The project helped to catalyse collaboration between insurers, industry and the Indian government taken forward by the partners.

Dr A. Didar Singh, FICCI’s Secretary General said: “Earth Security Group has made an important contribution to the insurance sector in India. It has projected the future business opportunities for insurance companies to accelerate sustainable energy and agriculture. FICCI is delighted to collaborate with the Earth Security Group in supporting the Indian insurance sector to help meet India’s sustainable growth objectives.”
