What should Lloyd’s of London underwrite?

Mary Poppins on Climate Action

Mothers Rise Up created a Mary Poppins meets climate action flash mob outside Lloyd’s of London on Monday June 13 2022. The insurer is enabling dangerous fossil fuel projects that threaten our planet and all our children’s futures. Mothers’ Rise Up’s colourful action aimed to call Lloyd’s out – and do it in style!

The event took inspiration from the Let’s Go Fly a Kite scene in Mary Poppins, where work obsessed Dad, George Banks, has an epiphany and realises that his children are all that really matters. The mothers hope the action will inspire Lloyd’s bosses to have their own epiphany moment and stop insuring fossil fuels.

Lloyd’s insures fossil projects over insurers refuse to touch because of their colossal climate impacts, such as the Trans Mountain Pipeline in Canada. It has not ruled insuring the East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP), which will devastate communities and nature across Tanzania and Uganda.
