Sustainability is the originator of our strategy: we act as a responsible insurer, investor, employer and citizen for the common good to build a more resilient and just society.

Responsible Business

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 and more sustainable 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 our new strategy “Lifetime Partner 24: Driving Growth” sustainability is the originator, inspired by our ambition to be a lifetime partner. Being the originator of the new strategy means for Sustainability to be a game changer, shaping the way all the decisions are taken leading Generali to be a transformative, generative and impact-driven company, able to create shared value.

In the next three years, our aim is to deliver a positive social and environmental impact on stakeholders by integrating even more sustainability in core business and processes, staying open to include our commitment to the community as an integral part of the overall strategic positioning.
