At Zurich, sustainability means doing business today in a way that safeguards the future of our company and our society. It is about the solutions we provide to our customers, the way in which we invest our assets, and how we proactively determine ways to address environmental, social and governance issues in our-day-to-day activities. It is all linked to the fundamental role that insurance plays in society. Sustainability is at the heart of our culture, our purpose and values. Therefore, every employee is encouraged to contribute to Zurich becoming one of the most responsible and impactful businesses in the world.
To lead positive impact today and create a brighter future tomorrow, we are focusing on:
We were the first insurer to commit to the UN’s Business Ambition for 1.5°C and remain signatories to a number of other external sustainability principles, including actively supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals and UN Global Compact. To monitor our progress and continuously improve our sustainability performance, we use stakeholder feedback provided through customer advisory boards and employee surveys, as well as ratings and indices such as CDP, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes (DJSI) and the MSCI ESG rating – where Zurich continues to achieve leading performance within the insurance sector.
