Please join the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Dr. Maryam Golnaraghi, Director of Climate Change and Environment, The Geneva Association, presenting at virtual seminar titled Leveraging the Power of the Insurance Industry to Expedite Industrial Decarbonization on Friday, July 26, 2024.

Meeting global climate targets requires industries, including large carbon emitting industries such as steel, aluminum and aviation, to adopt a range of new technologies and processes that accelerate their decarbonisation. However, many such climate-related technologies remain in pre-commercialization stages, are capital intensive and are highly complex. They have untested risks, a wide range of challenges with scaling and market readiness, and scarcity of data for assessing insurability conditions. This webinar explores how to leverage the expertise of the Property and Casualty (P&C) insurance and reinsurance industry to frame risks, enhance insurability conditions and deliver a full suite of insurance solutions, all of which are critical for unlocking capital, expediting market readiness of these technologies and enabling their adoption by industrial sectors.

Maryam is the Director of Climate Change and Environment at The Geneva Association, the strategic international think tank of the insurance industry. From 2004 to 2014 Maryam served as the Chief of Disaster Risk Reduction at the United Nations’ World Meteorological Organization, where she headed up an international program and led climate and disaster risk management projects in over 40 countries. Before that she founded and served as the CEO of Climate Risk Solutions, Inc., a first-of-its-kind research and advisory firm delivering advanced climate risk analytics and risk management solutions. Maryam received a Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography and a M.Sc. in Applied Physics from Harvard University, and a B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from Cornell University.
