Munich Re upscaling human rights due diligence using Verisk’s ESG risk analytics
LONDON, Jan. 17, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Munich Re, a leading global provider of reinsurance, primary insurance and insurance-related risk solutions, has selected Verisk’s global risk analytics business, Verisk Maplecroft, to help it enhance human rights due diligence across the entire enterprise.
Using Verisk Maplecroft’s world leading Human Rights Risk Indices, which identify exposure to 31 civil, political and labour rights risks at national and subnational levels in 198 countries, Munich Re will upscale its ability to undertake global operational risk assessments, alongside factoring the data into its underwriting and investment decisions.
“Munich Re has always been committed to observe its duty of care on human rights along the value chain and has strived to prevent potential adverse impact on human rights arising from its business operations,” says Silke Jolowicz, Head of Sustainability at Munich Re. “To meet our strong internal requirements and the increasing legal obligations facing global business today we have decided to work with Verisk Maplecroft whose data will help us achieve these aims.”
Verisk Maplecroft has been measuring and analysing human rights risks for over 15 years. Its Human Rights Dataset is the only structured set of analytics covering the full range of rights the world over and is recognised as the benchmark for excellence in assessing these risks. The data has long been used by multinationals managing human rights risks in their operations and supply chains, and by asset managers and banks assessing and addressing their human rights risk exposure across complex global investment and lending portfolios. Adoption by insurers is the next step.
“As sustainability and ESG continue to quickly move more central into insurer’s strategic and operational thinking, we’re seeing increased attention from companies in the sector into how they can better manage human rights due diligence processes and wider ESG issues, such as climate change,” says Verisk Maplecroft President Matt Moshiri. “Munich Re is one of the first movers in this space and we are delighted to be working with them in their efforts.”

SKEL fjárfestingafélag hf.: Amendment to the financial calendar and previously disclosed information4.2.2023 19:13:54 CET | Press release
The audit of SKEL’s financial statements for the year 2022, which has not been finalized, has resulted in a change of its presentation due to the company‘s transition into an investment company. Shares in subsidiaries were capitalized according to the equity method until year end 2021 but are recognised at fair value through profit or loss from the beginning of 2022. This results in a previously unrealized fair value change from 2021 of ISK 2.6 billion that was formerly accounted for directly through equity, will instead be recognised in the income statement for 2022. This change of presentation has no effect of previously announced equity for year-end 2022 of ISK 33.0-33.5 billion. Further, this does not alter the company’s ability to pay dividend. The company‘s estimated earnings net of tax will, however, increase by ISK 2.6 billion and amount to ISK 17.1-17.6 billion instead of ISK 14.5-15.0 billion as was previously announced on 31 January 2023. The company has decided to change th
