Pace is everything

Greater collaboration across industries is a must as we move to net zero.  The varied perspectives connecting will drive innovation and thus present new business or professional opportunities.  We have to have an open mind and think wider than our traditional industry boundaries have previously required.  Using Insurance as an example and building on the wearable tech linking health care and insurance, opportunities exist by using the data available to us for preventative rather than reactive insurance measures protecting the exposure which will drive down policy costs.  i.e. using IOT or building tech data and connecting building insurance products with the inclusion of building maintenance/efficiency services; linking Global climate real time reporting to map of insured exposure with a view to activate preventative measures such as deploying temporary sandbags to low lying areas with risk of increased flooding.  Things are starting to move, but this is just the tip of the iceberg and we need to pick up the pace……
