In furtherance to her culture of corporate accountability, Allianz group has released it 2018 sustainability report to her stakeholders and the general public. The 110 – page report, set – out in 10 chapters, presents a deep insight into Allianz’s efforts in promoting corporate sustainability in its core business of insurance and assets management. The report featured graphs highlighting the most important sustainability trends in Allianz’s. Each chapter in the report contains icons related to the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): these icons represent the SDGs where Allianz mostly contributes with its activities; the size of each icon indicates the level of potential impact by Allianz.

With over 92 million customers worldwide, Allianz has grown to be one of the world’s largest insurers, investors and assistance providers, creating value for all stakeholders while remaining socially responsible. The 2018 sustainability report provides detailed information about Allianz’s application of ESG criteria at all levels of business whilst keeping their sustainability approach up-to-date. The report also tells the story of what the company is doing to promote social inclusion – including Encouraging Future Generations program, which supports children and young people around the world. Example of the inclusion programs include the partnership with the SOS Children’s Villages,  in which Allianz employees provide support worldwide through efforts such as the Allianz World Run. The number of kilometres employees run (in the Allianz World Run) determines the size of donation to the Villages. Thus far, Allianz has raised 1.4 million Euro over the last three years, with the participation of up to 10,000 runners in 123 countries.

On the culture of deep social impact through effective CSR, Allianz CEO – Oliver Bäte, caps it thus, “our understanding of Corporate Responsibility, and what we’re doing to support sustainable development, forms the basis of this report. It includes our consideration of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and offers an overview of our entire commitment to corporate responsibility. After 128 years of a company history filled with changes, transformation has once again taken centre stage in our strategy and demands our attention. It will determine not just how we do business, but how we live up to our corporate responsibility for the environment, climate and society as a whole, all over the world.”
