Insurance Assembly - Extinction Rebellion UK
citizens' assembly

In a UK first, XR UK is holding a space specifically designed for the Insurance Community to ‘come to the table’ and engage around the critical question:

How can the insurance industry move faster to slow climate breakdown?

HOSTED BY The Assembly Escalation Campaign – Find out more

Insurance is the Achilles heel of the global fossil fuel industry, covering operations against financial losses when things go wrong. Without insurance, major oil and gas projects like the East Africa Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) or the West Cumbria coal mine cannot go ahead. 

The risk of mounting claims for ecocidal projects are increasing, leading insurers to pull out. Rising costs were the main factor in ending the UK’s Cambo and Canada’s Bay du Nord (Equinor) projects. Probitas confirmed it has moved away from Adani and the pressure is building on EACOP and West Cumbria Mine.

We need to insure our future, not fossil fuel based climate collapse.

Our current governance systems are failing to transition us fast enough – we need a Citizen’s Assembly on Climate and Ecological Justice now.
