Butch Bacani is the Head of Insurance at the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and leads the UN Principles for Sustainable Insurance Initiative (PSI), the largest collaboration between the UN and the insurance industry. Endorsed by the UN Secretary-General and insurance industry CEOs, the PSI is a global framework and initiative for the industry to address sustainability issues—as risk managers, insurers and investors—and to build resilient, inclusive and sustainable communities and economies on a healthy planet.

Butch conceptualised sustainable insurance, net-zero insurance, nature-positive insurance, and insurance SDGs. He leads initiatives that contribute to achieving the Paris Climate Agreement, Global Biodiversity Framework, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Butch co-led the creation of the UN Sustainable Insurance Forum for regulators and supervisors, worked with the California Insurance Commissioner to produce the world’s first sustainable insurance roadmap, and was a member of the Green Finance Task Force initiated by the People’s Bank of China and UNEP to establish China’s green financial system.

Butch initiated efforts that produced regional sustainable insurance roadmaps and strategies for the African and Latin American insurance markets, as well as at the national and state levels—from Brazil and Costa Rica, to California and Canada. He has authored pioneering studies on sustainable insurance and responsible investment; and was part of InsuranceERM’s inaugural list of the most influential people leading and shaping the insurance industry’s response to climate change.
Butch led the global process that created the PSI in 2012 and led UNEP’s insurance and investment global work programmes from 2006 to 2010, working with the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). He has shaped global initiatives to address climate change and disaster risks, nature and biodiversity loss, plastic pollution, environmental pollution liability, illegal fishing, and tobacco risks; and to protect UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Prior to the UN, he was in the insurance industry for over a decade, working with leading insurers and reinsurers worldwide.

Butch is also involved in the work of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ), Global Shield against Climate Risks, Insurance Development Forum, California Climate Insurance Working Group, Microinsurance Network, European Commission’s Climate Resilience Dialogue, Global Reporting Initiative, and World Benchmarking Alliance.

I have worked for OOM Verzekeringen for almost fifteen years now and still going strong.

In my job there isn’t room for a dull moment.

In a world full of package made insurances, we listen and offer handmade solutions.

Outside of work I love to write, from columns to an actual book. I also teach Pilates to clear my and everybody else’s head. Time that’s left I love spending it with my family (husband, daughter 22, son 20) and friends.
