As the third-largest reinsurer in the world, we are aware of our responsibility to society. For us, this also means showing social engagement and supporting relevant institutions and projects. For example, we support universities as well as educational and research projects with a bearing on reinsurance business. Not only that, for many years we have been a sponsor of art, culture and music at our Hannover location. We encourage the dedication shown by our staff in countless projects around the world and we support international projects in accordance with our Donations Guideline.
Responsibility for our social engagement rests with the full Executive Board, the members of which are jointly accountable for the implementation and refinement of strategic issues relating to sustainability.
Our investment in the community is regulated by our Group-wide Donations Guideline, which rules out donations to political parties and churches or other political or religious organisations as well as organisations for the protection of historical monuments and animal welfare. Compliance with this guideline is verified by the Group Auditing function.
