Allianz recognized as one of the leading insurance companies for sustainability

In today’s announcement of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), Allianz was named one of the sustainability leaders in the insurance industry - again.


Long-term success of a company is determined by the interplay of economic, environmental and social factors. Especially in the last years, extra-financial factors such as environmental and social criteria have received more attention.


The Corporate Sustainability Assessment of robecoSAM analyzes a company’s performance according to those categories. Allianz has been included in the DJSI since 2000 with top ranking positions over the past years. This year Allianz was named as one of the sustainability leaders in the insurance sector again.


Allianz earned special recognition in the areas of Financial Inclusion, Risk Detection, Principles for Sustainable Insurance, Brand Management and Stakeholder Engagement.


Its commitment to offer insurance to low-income households, integrate UN Principles for Sustainable Insurance into core strategies and processes, a dialogue-oriented stakeholder communication and the establishment of the ESG Board, an accountability mechanism, were especially recognized.


“As a long-term risk manager and investor, for us sustainability is an integral part of the way we do business”, says Maximillian Zimmerer, Allianz SE Board of Management member. “Being ranked amongst the top for 15 consecutive years is a motivation for our people to continue our sustainability journey together with our stakeholders.”
