Our industry-leading approach integrates sustainability concerns by applying Allianz Group-wide corporate rules and ESG instruments across all our underwriting, investment, and asset management activities.

Examples of sustainability risks include human rights violations, illegal logging activities, or severe corruption allegations.

However, sustainability factors can also present opportunities to induce positive change, such as increased requirements for renewable energy investments or offering solutions for emerging markets. We aim to lead our industry in integrating sustainability factors into our insurance and investment decisions.

Environmental responsibility

We are proud to be a founding member of the UN convened Net Zero Asset Owners Alliance, committing to achieve net zero across our investments and underwriting portfolios by 2050.

We’re committed to reducing our carbon emissions from our offices across the UK and we’ve been carbon neutral since 2012. We will continue to set ourselves targets including transitioning to an electric corporate car fleet by 2030.
