At Generali we believe sustainability is a necessary strategic way to approach business and not just a nice-to-have.
It all stems from our purpose, to “enable people to shape a safer future by caring for their lives and dreams”.
As an insurer we can tackle the megatrends of our times, protecting people, their health, our planet and future generations.
It is about creating long-lasting value shared among a wide array of stakeholders: not only shareholders, investors and clients, but also employees, suppliers, the environment, local communities, and society as a whole.
In the next three years we commit to increasing the portion of premiums deriving from green and social products by 7-9% and we will allocate €4.5 billion to green and sustainable investments. We will also launch two flagship initiatives: Responsible Consumers, a distinctive and customized product offering, and EnterPRIZE, an award for the best sustainable SMEs. At the same time, we are expanding even more our global community initiative, The Human Safety Net, aiming to unlock the potential of disadvantaged people so that they can transform the lives of their families and communities.
We want to protect the environment, which we consider a primary asset to be preserved for future generations, implementing our Climate Change strategy, approved by our Board of Directors, in our core business activities.
We believe in the people who have chosen to work with us worldwide. We know that their talent, their diversity and their abilities to be inclusive allow us to be a more innovative Group, capable of changing our customers’ lives.
Our sustainability commitment is not something new: throughout the years, we have publicly joined voluntary initiatives such as the Global Compact (2007), the Principles for Responsible Investment (2011), the Principles for Sustainable Insurance (2014) and the Paris Pledge for Action (2015), consistently with our vision.
