In the same way that climate change, ESG and diversity are now embedded within the UK education system from kindergarten, the LMA is starting an Academy to train new recruits, and existing staff, in the new ways of ESG thinking. Here’s the word;
The Lloyd’s Market Association (LMA) has announced the launch of its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Academy, designed for professionals within the Lloyd’s market and the global (re)insurance sector. Developed in collaboration with market leading external ESG advisors including the Better Insurance Network, the LMA ESG Academy represents a significant milestone in the insurance sector’s journey towards a more sustainable and responsible future.
With a comprehensive range of courses and resources, the ESG Academy will equip professionals with the knowledge and tools necessary to navigate the evolving ESG landscape, risk management and the implications for the Lloyd’s market. Delivered across three unique learning pathways, courses are designed to equip (re)insurance professionals at any level with a practical grounding in sustainability, along with facilitator-led courses for practitioners and senior leaders seeking deeper knowledge.
The Academy’s courses will be accessible online, virtually and in-person, ensuring flexibility and convenience for participants.
Andrew Oakley, Head of LMA Academy, said: “The launch of the LMA ESG Academy is a testament to the LMA’s commitment to ensure the market is equipped to employ sustainable and responsible business practices. As the importance of ESG considerations continues to grow, professionals in the industry now have access to specialised ESG training sessions to stay ahead of the curve and drive positive change within their organisations.”
