Lacewell today announced that the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) has issued proposed detailed guidance for New York-regulated domestic insurers setting out DFS’s expectations related to managing the financial risks from climate change.

The proposed guidance builds on the circular letter issued by DFS on September 22, 2020, which outlined its expectations that all New York insurers start integrating the consideration of the financial risks from climate change into their governance frameworks, risk management processes, and business strategies, and developing their approach to climate-related financial disclosure.
