Environmental responsibility

 

We’re proud to be the number three insurer in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and a founding member of the Net Zero Asset Owner Alliance. The Alliance is committed to tackling global warming and reducing the carbon emissions of their investment portfolios to net-zero by 2050.

We’re committed to reducing our carbon emissions from our offices across the UK and we’ve been carbon neutral since 2012, achieved a 35% cut in CO2 emissions per employee since 2010 and 81% of our electricity now comes from renewable sources. We’ll continue to set ourselves targets including sourcing 100% of our electricity from renewable sources by 2023 and reduce our carbon footprint.

In the 2019 report, we are focusing on Allianz’s commitment to long-term climate protection – both through our business activities as an insurer and investor and our corporate operations. The report gives you an overview of a wide array of topics from how we manage ESG risks and opportunities in our business, offer sustainable solutions, protect our customers, develop our people and engage in the community.
