Munich Re corporate responsibility strategy rated positively

Open and transparent dialogue with our national and international stakeholders on our commitment in the areas of corporate responsibility and socially responsible investment (SRI) is an essential part of our corporate culture.

The inclusion of Munich Re (Group) in numerous sustainability indices and our good to very good results in many different SRI ratings show that we are on the right track here.

As there are so many SRI rating and ranking programmes, our SRI rating strategy outlines the criteria that determine which programmes we participate in: the basic prerequisite for our participation in an SRI rating  is that it involves a broad-based approach to sustainability, i.e. considers environmental, social and governance (ESG) aspects. Transparent methodology and a comprehensible assessment system are also essential.
