The 2011 Generali Group Sustainability Report, its eighth such report, confirms the international perspective: the geographical
area covered includes the main countries in which the Group operates, i.e. Italy,
Austria, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Israel, Spain and Switzerland. The
focus is on insurance and banking business, including service-related businesses.
Moreover, for the first time the Report also covers the Group's real estate companies,
providing greater detail on this sector.
The 2011 Sustainability Report area represents 71.8% of the Group workforce and 87.1% of its total gross direct premiums.
Information is organized by key stakeholders, divided into the usual three categories:
direct stakeholders (employees and sales force, shareholders), competitive stakeholders (clients, contractual partners and issuing companies) and social-environmental stakeholders (community and environment).
Other than all chapters in the Report, the Environment one contains data which
refer exclusively to companies included in the Environmental Management System
of the Group so that significant comparisons can be made against the Group’s targets
for the System.
Concerning updating, quantitative data refer to fiscal year 2011 while qualitative
data are updated up to the first months of 2012.
Compared to previous editions following changes have been introduced:
Since 2010 the Sustainability Report and the Consolidated annual report are closer integrated, the latter contains a set of key quantitative indicators
in addition to the usual qualitative information on sustainability principles,
policies and governance. These indicators measure the results obtained throughout
the year in relation to the social and environmental issues that are most important
to the Company like the technical indicators for the Group insurance activities.
