Unfriend Coal releases insurance scorecard on coal and climate change

Unfriend Coal, the campaign led by Climate Breakthrough Awardee John Hepburn, has released a scorecard report showing which insurance companies are taking action on coal and climate.

The scorecard shows nearly US$20 billion divested from coal by 15 insurers in the past two years. It also details how the world’s largest insurance companies rank and compare to each other in terms of taking action on coal and climate change.

The release of the scorecard generated significant international media coverage in leading financial news outlets including The Guardian and The New York Times.
