The need to support sustainable energy sources has never been greater. In the insurance market we are keenly aware of the rising frequency and potentially devastating consequences of extreme weather events. As the impact of climate change becomes increasingly apparent, businesses are looking to renewable energy sources to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and decrease their carbon footprint.
At RSA we believe it’s important to do our part in reducing global carbon emissions. Our focus on sustainability is broader than just the Renewable Energy customers we insure. It also plays a significant role in our own business practices.
As part of RSA’s Corporate Responsibility strategy, Making Things Better Together, we have made significant changes over the past number of years to reduce of energy consumption. Carl Strickland, Head of Operations for RSA Insurance Ireland, has written about how we’re taking action to reduce our impact on the environment.
RSA Group was one of the first insurance companies to protect off-shore wind farms back in the 1990s. Renewable energy is experiencing unprecedented growth and the scale of production is evolving dramatically. This is great news for the industry and the environment, but it also has significant risk implications.
