Insured emissions are the proportion of Green House Gas emissions from policyholders, attributable to the insurer. The idea being, by the simple act of insuring policyholders, insurers are enabling the production of Green House Gas emissions and so should take some responsibility for them.

How can insurers adapt their products and policy terms as part of the global transition to net-zero?
