Our sustainable investment strategy is enforced and developed through an impactful governance structure and implemented based on four key activities:
Strategy development and implementation
Munich Re’s sustainable investment strategy is anchored in two fundamental frameworks: Munich Re was one of the first signatories of The Principles for Responsible Investments (PRI), of which Munich Re was a founding member and is an active member of the Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance (NZAOA). The climate commitment to net-zero by 2050 in accordance with the NZAOA has become an integral part of the Group Ambition 2025, which was made public in 2020. On this basis, we have established a binding Group-wide Responsible Investment Guideline (RIG), which covers ESG requirements that concern the Group’s investment management, including binding exclusion criteria for investments.
To further strengthen Munich Re’s commitment to this cause, the Group’s two asset managers, MEAG and Munich Re Investment Partners, also became PRI signatories in 2021.
