Microplastics, tiny plastic particles that pose potential risks to human and animal health, are becoming a growing concern for regulators and stakeholders around the world. While the full risks to human health are not yet known, regulators are taking action to restrict the use of microplastics and prevent their accidental dispersal into the environment. As this issue gains attention, it could have implications for the insurance industry, with potential liability claims arising from the impacts of microplastics on human health and the environment. Insurers may need to assess their exposure to this emerging risk and develop strategies to mitigate it. Join us for this webinar to understand microplastics, the concerns and risks for the environment and human health, current regulations, litigation activity and implications on the insurance industry.
