On 15 March 2017 Assicurazioni Generali’s Board of Directors approved both the Group’s new Charter of Sustainability Commitments, defining Generali’s sustainability position and identifying its commitments towards stakeholders, and the 2016 Sustainability Report, disclosing on the Group’s commitments, actions and performance in the social and environmental spheres, which also underline its support for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The Charter of Commitments consists of two principle areas of activity. The first refers to running a sustainable business through the Group’s day-to-day activities and the second regards the positive impact Generali aims to create within the community. In both areas of activity - in line with input gained from listening to and discussing with a wide variety of stakeholders – Generali has identified the main commitments it will adhere to. These start with responding to megatrends which shape the Group’s business and the society, to being the first choice for their clients and valuing their distributors.
The Charter also contains the commitment to: contribute to the dialogue on sustainability in the financial community; build an inspiring place to work; offer an unrivalled service for their partners; create a tangible impact within the communities Generali operates in; be trusted as a committed corporate Group. Each commitment will be monitored and reported on, within all the business units of the Group on an annual basis.
