Trieste – Managing business looking at its sustainability in the long-term. This is documented in the Generali 2015 Sustainability Report which has reached its 12th edition and is released today.
The Report gives a complete overview of the sustainability performance of the Generali Group, describing its value creation process in the long-term, with a specific focus on the well-being of people, on progress and innovation. Generali is committed to supporting the Sustainable Development Goals, launched in 2015 by the United Nations, in order to define a universal action plan based on 17 specific goals of sustainable development. This is an effort proved by the numerous initiatives implemented in the Group companies that involved various stakeholders. Moreover, the attention towards internal stakeholders is also demonstrated by the first Generali Engagement Survey involving thousands of employees.
The creation of sustainable value is part of Generali’s strategy. Generali is committed to innovation through the selection of new ideas, the collaboration with start-ups and the creation of partnerships. This effort is also confirmed by the commitment in mitigating climate change, as stated during the 21st Conference of the Parties on Climate Change in Paris. This responsibility covers not only Generali’s direct impacts but also its indirect impacts through our products and investment choices. As part of this effort Generali also supports the 10 Global Compact principles including the respect of human and labour rights, the protection of the environment and the fight against corruption.
