Ensuring good corporate governance and compliance


Corporate governance

Swiss Re’s corporate governance framework ensures accountability and clear allocation of responsibilities. It fosters transparency and facilitates the assessment of the quality of Swiss Re’s organisation and business.

The framework also defines how Swiss Re implements, enhances and monitors its Group Sustainability Strategy. The Board of Directors, the Board committees and the Group Executive Committee as well as individual members thereof, have explicit responsibilities related to sustainability and climate-related topics.
