Sustainable approach to core business

The focus of our sustainable activities is on our core business – the assumption and diversification of risks in primary insurance and reinsurance, and also in investment. In our core business, we achieve the greatest possible impact for our Group and for society by taking into account environmental, social and governance aspects (ESG).

The fact that we have signed the Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI), the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and the Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance (AOA). Being founding member of the Net-Zero Insurance Alliance (NZIA) in 2021 highlights our commitment to responsible action. These voluntary commitments go well beyond what is required by law or by supervisory regulations.

Further key topics in our core business include climate change, digitalisation and risk awareness, something that is found in all our activities as a cross-cutting issue.
