Chubb must disclose GHG emission reduction measures

Insurance companies have a critical role to play in meeting the Paris Agreement’s 1.5 degrees Celsius goal, and yet Chubb does not measure or disclose its financed emissions.
Picture of campaign

Chubb is one of the world’s largest providers of commercial property and casualty insurance and reinsurance, with $167 billion in assets and over $38 billion of gross written premiums as of 2018.

Chubb must begin to measure and disclose these metrics to ensure its progress toward climate related sustainability.

The proposal requests that Chubb issue a report addressing whether and how it intends to measure, disclose, and reduce the GHG emissions associated with its underwriting, insuring, and investment activities in alignment with the Paris Agreement’s 1.5oC goal, requiring net zero emissions.

• Whether Chubb will begin measuring and disclosing the emissions associated with the full range of its operations and when; and
