Without insurance, new fossil fuel projects cannot be built and most existing ones cannot continue to operate. While some insurers have started to rule out underwriting a few coal projects, the sector continues to wreck our climate by supporting ever more coal mines, gas pipelines and oil fields.

These projects are often built on stolen land and poison local communities. The impacts of climate chaos will destroy the lives of billions of people, devastating already exploited communities first. Right now, millions of people are losing their homes, livelihoods and food security to natural disasters. Thousands are losing their lives. The response from insurance companies is to increase their profits by cutting off insurance from the communities on the frontline of climate change.

At Lloyd's of London HQ Pacific Climate Warriors lay floral tributes to those in danger from climate change in their home islands.


Across the world, communities are standing up to the insurance industry to stop fossil fuel projects. We stand in solidarity with them to demand climate justice. The insurance industry must stop underwriting fossil fuel projects, divest their funds from fossil fuel companies, and pay reparations to communities for the loss and damage already being done.
