To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
Aon P.L.C. on Tuesday said it has signed on to the United Nations’ Principles for Sustainable Insurance, a global framework for the insurance industry that seeks to address environmental, social and governance risks.

This includes analyzing and reducing disaster risks and health risks, developing insurance solutions for vulnerable communities and cities, and investments in resilient infrastructure and green technologies, Aon said.
“As the first global insurance broker to sign the Principles for Sustainable Insurance, Aon is demonstrating unparalleled leadership and commitment from the insurance broking community to support the global effort of building resilient, inclusive and sustainable communities and economies," said Butch Bacani, program leader for the UN Environment’s Principles for Sustainable Insurance Initiative.

Aon said its other environmental efforts include the recently released paper “An Investor’s Guide to Responsible Investment,” which examines the increased focus on responsible investment across asset classes, and the Aon Weather & Climate Risk Innovation network, which aims to help clients evaluate the potential impact of climate risk and weather on their operations and to develop risk financing strategies to improve resilience.
Sustainability is generally a good thing, whether in business or natural resources.
