Sustainability Early Careers Board

The Sustainability Early Careers Board is a new initiative being set up by our Sustainability Board.

As the social, business, and financial worlds are increasingly affected by environmental and societal risks, our profession’s impact in sustainability areas will continue to grow in the future. Early career actuaries can enhance our profession’s sustainability impact by bridging generational divides, providing new perspectives, and ensuring the next generation of actuaries have appropriate expertise to face the evolving challenges of our future. 

Our Sustainability Early Careers Board will harness the voices of early-career actuaries on sustainability issues and integrate their views into our Sustainability Board and the wider actuarial community. 

About the Board

Our Sustainability Early Careers Board will be the voice of the actuaries of the future, contributing to the ongoing development of our profession’s sustainability practice area.

The Early Careers Board will focus on new initiatives to raise the profile of sustainability amongst early career actuaries, as well as provide valuable feedback on the objectives and work of our Sustainability Board.

The board is expected to launch in late 2021 and will include 2 co-chairs and around 8-10 board members.

You can find Terms of Reference for the group, including key objectives, here.

    We continue to live in a world of global uncertainty. Survival depends on our ability to simultaneously navigate through the diverse root-causes, ranging from: the consequences of Climate Change; transitioning to Net Zero; increased inflationary pressures and supply chain issues; to self-imposed changes in regulatory requirements. CILA 2022 focuses on these challenges to ensure we continue to be informed and remain battle ready, as well as showcasing highlights of recent CMI outputs.

    This webinar will cover:

    • Some background on the risks of misselling in an ESG context, including the DWS case

    • Achieving positive impact is a strong antidote to the risks of greenwashing or ESG misselling, however this risks having a tension with fiduciary responsibilities

    • This tension can be resolved with a concept called Universal Ownership

    • Under Universal ownership, investors have an appetite to make a loss in order to achieve positive impact, and yet still have no compromise on their fiduciary responsibilities

  • Spaces available

    This session will focus on the transformation roadmap of the healthcare sector in KSA and the role of actuarial capabilities in enhancing its evolution to the desired end stage as per the objectives of the Vision 2030. The discussion will focus how the system has evolved so far and shed light on  the expected future changes. Through examining  the transformation, we will highlight how the sector is and can use actuarial  expertise to not only assist with this transformation but also use basic actuarial principles to identify the key risks and their respective mitigation strategies.
