Responsibility for ESG in the Board of Management

The highest governing body for sustainability-related issues is the Group ESG Board. Established in 2012, it consists of three Allianz SE Board members who meet quarterly. The Group ESG Board is responsible for integrating ESG into all business lines and core processes dealing with insurance and investment decisions. 

The three Board members assume responsibility for ESG issues such as the role of Allianz as a sustainable insurer, responsible investor and committed "corporate citizen". A special focus is on Allianz's contribution to climate protection, reducing its own carbon footprint and promoting the global transition to a low-carbon economy.
