Green Insurance Linked Securities
In 2021 Generali sponsored Lion III Re catastrophe risk bond, the first ever Insurance Linked Security (ILS) issuance embedding innovative green features in compliance with the Generali Green ILS Framework, which allows for the transfer of insurance risk to institutional investors. In line with its principles: (i) Generali's freed-up capital resulting from the Lion III Re transaction will be allocated to green projects, (ii) the collateral is invested into highly rated green notes issued by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), (iii) a dedicated reporting of the allocation of freed-up capital to eligible projects as well as EBRD reporting on its Green Projects Portfolio will be provided. In addition, the primary service providers engaged have shown commitment to a sustainability framework in their business activities.
