The Foundation in Sustainable Insurance certificate


Developed by insurers

Climate change and the transition to a low carbon economy creates once-in-a-generation risks, threats and opportunities for (re)insurers, brokers and insureds. Educating insurance professionals is a critical step in future-proofing (re)insurance businesses and meeting stakeholder expectations.

Better Insurance Network has developed, in collaboration with a group of leading insurance organisations, the industry's first dedicated sustainability e-learning programme – 'Sustainability for Insurers' – to equip insurance professionals with a solid grounding in industry and role-specific sustainability.

Learners earn up to 4 CPD hours for completing the foundational modules and gain the Foundation in Sustainable Insurance certificate when this is combined with elective modules.

How it works

Sustainability for Insurers is available to individuals and organisations on an annual subscription basis. Learners access a structured, digestible syllabus of e-learning videos and supporting materials, featuring insights from dozens of expert practitioners. The learning content is regularly updated to keep pace with fastmoving regulation and best practices.

For organisations, learning paths can be tailored to suit the company and specific job roles. The content can be enriched with bespoke content aligned with the organisation’s own approach. The training is deployed via Better Insurance Network’s own learning management system (LMS) or can be licensed for deployment via a company’s own LMS.
