Environmental responsibility

 

We’re fully committed to the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement’s target to limit global warming to well below 2°C and we understand that reaching this goal will require a rapid and full decarbonisation of the global economy.

As one of the world’s largest institutional investors and insurers, we have a leading role to play in supporting the global transition to a low‑carbon future. We’re taking concrete actions and working with others to understand the science, develop and implement solutions and mitigate the impacts of climate change.

We’re anticipating the risks of climate change, protecting and caring for our customers through our insurance products and enabling the transition to a low-carbon economy with our insurance and investment activities.

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.
