LONDON, September 02, 2021 – Willis Towers Watson (NASDAQ: WLTW), a leading global advisory, broking, and solutions company, today announces that Liberty Specialty Markets has aligned capacity to support the Climate Transition Pathway (CTP) solution, an accreditation framework that provides insurance companies and financial institutions with a consistent approach to identifying businesses with robust low carbon transition plans aligned to the Paris Agreement.

Liberty becomes the first major insurer to align capacity to support CTP which is a best practice industry accreditation model to help companies transition to a low carbon economy.

Michael Gosselin, Chief Underwriting Officer – Specialty, at Liberty Specialty Markets, said: “Climate and environmental challenges continue, and all businesses are having to review their sustainable credentials.
