Responsible investments and insurance

As a global insurer and a responsible investor and asset manager, Allianz drives positive outcomes and embeds sustainability in its core business processes to manage risks and capture opportunities. We lead the industry in how we consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
ESG refers to the environmental, social and governance risks and opportunities that extend beyond traditional financial considerations.

ESG topics include the environment and climate change, human rights, impacts on local communities and the wellbeing of our workforce.

If they are not properly identified and managed, ESG risks can have significant repercussions for businesses. Managing ESG risks can also present opportunities, such as insuring and investing in renewable energy.

Embedding sustainability in our products and services


Sustainable innovation is a significant business opportunity and we collaborate with others to develop sustainable products and services for society. Our commitment to tackling ESG topics aims to embed sustainability everywhere – from how we run our business to our insurance, investment and asset management solutions.
