Julian James, chief executive officer, International Insurance at Sompo International, said: “At this critical and challenging time of tremendous change, our ability to provide the best possible service to our business partners and clients is vital. Energy, and renewables in particular, is one class of business where we see tremendous opportunity to expand our business. Prior to Covid-19 this was already a dynamic and developing sector. Now that policymakers are looking to deliver a green recovery from the global pandemic, this will inevitably accelerate the shift to renewable energy.”
