Corporate Responsibility expresses Swiss Re’s commitment to being an open, honest and transparent organisation that treats all its stakeholders – employees, shareholders, clients, government regulators and the general public – with respect and integrity. We aim to take a long-term view, playing our part in enabling sustainable progress.
We are committed to being a responsible company. Contributing to sustainable, long-term value creation serves as a guiding principle for our practical actions.
We work for the benefit of our clients and shareholders — and ultimately, we aim to serve society at large. This is the essence of sustainable value. This long-term approach is one of our core values, and thus reflected in the principles of our Code of Conduct:
- Being open, honest and transparent in everything we do
- Treating everyone with respect
- Taking the long-term view, playing our part in enabling sustainable progress
- Creating an inclusive culture that encourages diversity of thought and opinion
This section describes some of the progress we have made in living up to those values over 2013. The full 2013 Corporate Responsibility Report will be published in spring 2014.
