Just as QBE helps customers to manage their risks, we apply a similar approach to managing our risks and sustainability challenges as a business. This is consistent with our membership of the UNEP FI and being a PSI signatory, where we seek to embed awareness of sustainability issues into our decision making. In addition, QBE works with employees, clients and business partners to raise awareness of ESG and sustainability issues, manage risks and develop solutions.
Throughout the year, QBE representatives attended and spoke at business roundtables, seminars and events on sustainability topics, including impact investing, diversity, climate change, sustainable communities, human rights and sustainable finance. Examples include: In November 2017, PSI and Munich Re held the inaugural PSI event in the US. As a PSI signatory, QBE employees attended the event which focused on the North American sustainable insurance agenda including action around building resilient and sustainable communities and economies. Following the two-day conference, we are exploring opportunities to contribute to coastal resiliency and helping communities to plan for the impacts of climate change.
