QBE has a dedicated Responsible Investments (RI) team, which reports to the Group Chief Investment Officer and Group Chief Financial Officer. The RI team’s activities are also communicated with the ESG Committee, which reports to the Board Risk and Capital Committee, and where appropriate, the Board Investment Committee.
As well as this in 2018 QBE created a new ESG Risk team with responsibility for coordinating the ongoing integration of ESG risks within the business. In collaboration with the business, the ESG Risk team is responsible for the day-to-day management of ESG risks and acts as an expert team for the Group and divisions. This team works alongside the RI team and provides a second line risk function for investments.
