An achievement like this doesn’t just happen overnight. Many ambitious and dedicated colleagues have worked together over a number of years to achieve this goal. While there are still challenges to come, we have made great strides in recent years. We have further embedded environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria into our proprietary portfolio (the money we manage on behalf of our insurance customers), by rolling out the ESG Scoring approach across our debt and equity investments. This allows us to make even better investment decisions that foster sustainable markets and societies, while meeting long-term interests. We have also grown closer to the community, having expanded our Corporate Citizenship Program and launching the Future Generations Award for helping underprivileged youth.
These steps forward have helped us to win the trust and recognition of our employees, customers and policymakers that enable us to be a leader of sustainable business standards in the financial community.
