Climate Solvency The Actuaries Carbon Collaboration: Applying Actuarial Concepts to Carbon Emissions

Wednesday 6 July 2022 13:30 - 14:30

The Actuaries’ Carbon Collaboration (ACC) is a group of actuaries and other professionals working towards a coherent understanding of the issues around greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by considering them in an actuarial context.

Emissions into and absorption from the atmosphere can be modelled in the same way that we model variable cash flows, including the impacts of uncertain quantities and timing. The ACC’s work investigates both the insights that this analogy provides and its limitations.

This webinar will highlight some of the lessons learned from applying actuarial concepts to the topic of GHG emissions and explore some outstanding problems.
