Sustainable Development Goals Member Interest Group (MIG)

The Sustainability Board has set up a Member Interest Group in order to build and share knowledge among IFoA members to expand the profession’s capacity in sustainable development.

The Sustainable Development Goals MIG will work towards the following objectives:

  1. to form either one or multiple study groups with the following target output in its first year:
    • to produce a sustainable development reading list as a source of information for any actuary or student looking to develop their knowledge
    • a group of actuaries and students with a firm basis of knowledge in sustainability
  2. to share regular news and updates on sustainability with others in the MIG via an online forum and the Sustainability monthly newsletter
  3. to raise awareness and understanding of environmental issues across the profession.

    In this webinar, we will discuss how cause-of-death data from the Office for National Statistics can help us to understand how inequalities arise at the all-cause level.

    The importance of biodiversity for finance, business and policy is being increasingly recognised. While many studies highlight the overall economic impact that biodiversity loss could have, it is much more difficult to quantify and understand the particular impact that is may have on individual businesses or communities. The management and measurement of these risks is a field where actuaries are well placed to contribute.
