Re-confirmation in the FTSE4Good Index and the main sustainability indices

Trieste. Assicurazioni Generali has entered the STOXX Europe Sustainability Index and been re-confirmed in the FTSE4Good Index. The Generali Group’s place in the indices is recognition of its absolute commitment to sustainability, where it has been focusing recently on environmental issues and respect for human rights.

The STOXX Europe Sustainability Index is a ranking of companies from the STOXX Europe 600 Index, selected on the basis of environmental, social and governance criteria.

Generali has also been re-confirmed in the FTSE4Good Index. Created by the FTSE Group global indices company, the FTSE4Good assesses the performance of companies that adopt universally recognised corporate responsibility standards and promotes investment in the companies.

To gain inclusion, companies are assessed by an independent agency on the basis of the rigorous FTSE4Good social and environmental criteria, which attach particular importance to environmentally sustainable policies and practices and human rights.

Generali’s performance is also included  in the ASPI (Advanced Sustainable Performance Indices) Eurozone Index, the ECPI Euro and Global Ethical Indices and the Benchmark and Leaders indices of FTSE ECPI Italia SRI, the first Italian index of socially responsible stocks set up recently through a FTSE and ECPI partnership.
