Social Inclusion

Why Social Inclusion Matters

We believe that social inclusion is one of the most important challenges for our societies. That is why it became an integral part of our Corporate Responsibility Strategy in 2016.

As an insurer, we believe that children and young people are the key factor in shaping inclusive, pro-active and resilient societies. To amplify our role as a committed corporate citizen, we launched "Encouraging Future Generations" – our new social inclusion program promoting better opportunities for young people worldwide. We foster social innovation through partnerships with social organizations and social entrepreneurs, corporate volunteering, fundraising, donations and much more. Here is the place to discover our commitment!

SOS Children's Villages

Joining forces with SOS Children's Villages

We want to foster a young generation capable of shaping their own future. Our programs focus on child safety and education, and are tailored towards the needs of children from disadvantaged backgrounds and disaster prone regions. 

Future Generations Award

The Investment Ready Program with Impact Hub

Together with Impact Hub, Allianz developed an accelerator program to enhance investment opportunities for social ventures. The ten teams receive a five-month training and the chance to win the Future Generations Award.

Social Innovation Fund

Local Allianz entities partner with charitable innovators

Each year, the Social Innovation Fund enables local Allianz entities to promote change-makers in their region. The winners receive funding to put their innovative solutions for a more inclusive society into action.
