  • Insurance and risk transfer solutions can protect nature-based carbon assets, enhance their resilience and compensate for losses from adverse weather events. Standard engineering and property policies can provide cover for the construction and operational risks of technology-based carbon-removal facilities.
  • Re/insurers can support the scaling up of the carbon-removal industry as institutional investors, providing financing for projects, services and new infrastructure. This also increases the amount of finance flowing to this growing industry.
  • Re/insurers can be early buyers of carbon-removal certificates to help achieve their own net-zero operational footprint. Whilst emissions from the insurance industry are relatively smaller than some other sectors, being an early buyer assures future revenues for removal projects and helps get them started.
