We pursue the objective of value creation not only in economic terms but also in social and environmental terms. We are committed to ensuring good financial performance in the long term and to helping to change for the better the society in which we operate.
We want to help improve people’s lives, above all through high quality products and services that meet our clients’ protection needs. We also feel part of the community in which we operate, and seek to aid it by supporting various projects. We believe our success is primarily based on the quality of our people.
In this respect, and at European level according to a specific European Directive, the Group set up an appropriate venue to improve social dialogue with the European Works Council in 1997.
Moreover, we adopted the European Social Charter in 2006 to address some principles and objectives which aim to promote mutual trust between management and employees and a positive working environment based on respect of labour rights.
Our corporate responsibility strategy is established on the basis of the Group’s business priorities and the principles set out in our Code of Conduct. The strategy also takes into account the needs and expectations of our key stakeholders, who play an important role in the ongoing success of the Group. Our strategy is outlined in the Charter of Sustainability Commitments. This document is fundamental to the management of key social, environmental and governance matters. It also identifies areas of action we intend to focus on in the coming years, to help us achieve our business objectives and create value for our stakeholders.
In order to identify the priorities for our corporate responsibility strategy and to define the content of the Sustainability Report, we have conducted our formal Materiality Analysis, in accordance with the GRI-G4 reporting guidelines.
As part of our commitment to corporate responsibility, we are signatories of the following United Nations’ initiatives: the Global Compact, the Principles for Responsible Investments (PRI) and the Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI).
