People, Planet, Prosperity

No poverty; affordable and clean energy; decent work and economic growth; industry, innovation and infrastructure; climate action; sustainable cities and communities...these are just some of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations to ensure a better tomorrow.

Businesses, especially in the financial services sector, have a huge responsibility - and opportunity - to support these goals.

After extensive analysis and discussions, we at Allianz have identified projects and activities across the group that best illustrate how we contribute to certain SDGs. Our latest Sustainability Report details these contributions. 

Here are the highlights of 2017:

  • Switched the green bond investments and launch of systematic approach for engagement with investee companies on ESG grounds.

  • Green bond investments of 2.5 billion euros.

  • 17 percent cut in CO2 emissions per employee since 2010.

  • 922 suppliers have signed our Vendor Code of Conduct.

  • 60 percent of business segments measuring Net Promoter Score (NPS) performed significantly above market average or achieved loyalty leadership in their market.

Clearly, a lot of efforts have gone into these achievements. Yet, there’s much that still needs to be done. As Allianz Chief Executive Officer Oliver Bäte puts it: “Climate change and economic instability are amongst the biggest challenges we will face in the coming decades."

"We have no time to waste. It’s not a question of getting the wheels turning, but rather how fast we can drive the change.”
