Our Top Topics
Via Group Issue Management, Swiss Re identifies topics that are strategically important to us, our clients and society at large. These Top Topics denote the global challenges we want to help address and set an important focus for our global stakeholder dialogue.
In 2015, we formed a new Reputation Management Committee, which comprises representatives from across the Group, ie our three Business Units, Investor Relations, Group Risk Management, Group Communications and – as from 1 March 2017 – the Swiss Re Institute. The Committee coordinates the content of our stakeholder dialogue across all our Business Units, functions and regions in order to optimise its effectiveness.
In 2016, we continued to focus on our Top Topics in our stakeholder dialogue:
- Advancing sustainable energy solutions
- Funding longer lives
- Managing climate and natural disaster risk
- Partnering for food security
- Supporting financial resilience
We worked on these Top Topics with many partners from the public and private sectors. In the following sections we introduce each topic, explain why we consider it to be important and give examples of our communications activities.
