As an insurer Ageas is at the heart of society and present in the lives of many, and with that comes responsibility. To us, sustainability is about the bigger contribution we make as a Group towards society where we have the capacity to create value for all our stakeholders. This ranges from societal issues like an ageing population and health challenges to mobility and climate change.
In the context of Connect21, Ageas made a major commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). And based on a detailed mapping of Ageas’s current products, investments and core competences, Ageas has chosen to actively work around 10 out of the 17 SDGs. This framework helps guide our choices and decisions and keeps us focused on addressing a wide range of global topics.
With respect to investments, Ageas also underwrote the UN Principles of Responsible Investment (UN PRI): a strong commitment to incorporate environmental, social and governance aspects as a fundamental cornerstone of our investment decisions. We invest in innovative infrastructure and energy projects and offer sustainable investment products to our customers.
This year we also endorsed the UNEP FI Principles of Sustainable Insurance (PSI). As an international insurance Group, we have a meaningful role to play in enabling a healthy, safe, resilient, and sustainable society. We do this by addressing risks but also in stimulating innovative risk management and insurance solutions.
