“We want to be sure that people who, looking for safety, have had to flee their home country due to war or political persecution can be insured in Germany until they find permanent residence. At the same time, we also want to protect our citizens in the event of damage unintentionally caused by the refugees,” says Alexander Vollert, member of the Board of Management of Allianz Deutschland. In an interview, he explains how, in its capacity as insurance provider, Allianz is contributing to improving Germany’s refugee situation. Allianz Deutschland advocates taking a practical approach to dealing with this unprecedented refugee situation: “Allianz offers local communities group policies that are effective immediately. For three to five euros a month and per person, refugees or asylum seekers can be covered by personal liability insurance again the main risks of day-to-day life.”

Jun 12, 2018 | Allianz SE

Natural resources such as clean air and fresh water are vital for businesses – and at the same time massively at risk across many industry sectors today. Failure to manage the earth’s natural resources or “natural capital” has consequences that extend beyond direct effects on the environment. For businesses, it can also bring new interruption and liability scenarios which can wipe out profits and impact business models, as resource scarcity, regulatory action and pressure from communities and wider society grows, warns AGCS in a new report.
