In 2020, tobacco will kill five times more people than COVID-19—and is on track to kill one billion people this century. Furthermore, cigarette butts are the largest single type of litter by count, and have become the number one form of plastic pollution in the ocean, surpassing plastic straws.
As the world moves to protect global health, the climate and nature, a growing number of insurers, investors and banks are going tobacco-free. Many have signed the Tobacco-Free Finance Pledge as part of their sustainability commitment, and in support of the World Health Organization (WHO) Framework Convention on Tobacco Control and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
At this global webinar by UNEP’s Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI) and Tobacco-Free Portfolios (TFP), hear from insurance industry leaders, Denis Duverne, Chairman of the AXA Group, and Lars-Göran Orrevall, CIO of Skandia, on why and how their respective companies have transitioned to tobacco-free insurance and investment portfolios, as well as key insights from the WHO, PSI and TFP.
