Consultation Responses18 August 2022
ShareAction has responded to HM Treasury's consultation review of Solvency II.

As part of out consultation response we call for higher capital requirements accounting for high-risk assets such as fossil fuels, mandatory net zero transition plans, a streamlined ‘double materiality’ approach for insurers to assess their impact on climate, rigorous stewardship policies for investment and underwriting, and stricter reporting rules as per the obligations of TCFD and TNFD.
