2019 Sustainability Report

Executive statement

« We are all looking back on a challenging year. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on individuals, families and economies – and at the time of writing unfortunately continues to do so. True to our vision of making the world more resilient, we have supported clients and partners during this difficult time by paying covered losses, by sharing insights and through our product innovations. »


Our approach to sustainability

Through our Group Sustainability Strategy, we aim to reinforce our efforts to make the world more resilient and sustainable, thus helping to maintain our competitiveness today and in future.


Creating solutions for sustainability

Our re/insurance solutions help address key environmental and social challenges. We focus on mitigating climate risk and advancing the energy transition, building societal resilience, and driving affordable insurance with digital solutions to advance access to insurance.


Extending our risk intelligence

As part of our comprehensive risk management, we address sustainability and emerging risks. For this, we have developed specific tools and know-how.


Being a responsible investor

We are convinced that integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into our investment portfolio makes economic sense. Our Responsible Investing strategy is based on the three cornerstones Enhancement, Inclusion and Exclusion.


Engaging in dialogue with our stakeholders

We engage in regular dialogue with our stakeholders. By co-creating knowledge and sharing expertise, we help society advance effective responses to key risks and challenges.


Driving sustainable operations

We lead by example and work to minimise the environmental impact of our operations. Bringing CO2 emissions to net zero by 2030 is our key target.


Engaging our people

We are an organisation where diverse talents come together globally to apply fresh perspectives and knowledge to make the world more resilient.


Ensuring good corporate governance and compliance

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues have grown in importance and become key focus areas in Europe, the US and other jurisdictions.
