By making regular donations and enabling corporate volunteering, i.e. releasing employees for charitable activities during working hours, we support social projects all around the world. In so doing, we contribute our expertise in the area of reinsurance, whenever possible.
Our staff in Hannover support the "Christmas tree campaign" for St. Joseph Kinder- und Jugendhilfe, a charitable institution that assists children and adolescents in Hannover between the ages of two and twenty who no longer live with their parents. Our employees regularly help to realise their Christmas dreams in order to make the holiday season more special.
Our branch in South Africa assists students in the discipline of actuarial science and those taking a Bachelor of Commerce degree with a concentration in accounting. We also support needy pupils at a local high school.
At our subsidiary in Florida the workforce supports the "New Hope for Kids" campaign: children and their families who find themselves in difficult life situations are assisted with cash donations or through the personal efforts of employees.
With our Donations Guideline, which is applicable Group-wide, we have defined our own policies for this social engagement. In our Sustainability Strategy we have set ourselves the goal of reviewing these guidelines and recording the social activities undertaken Group-wide. We attach crucial importance to the common public interest of the social groups and projects supported by our company. Consequently, we did not make any contributions to political parties, politicians or related institutions in the reporting period or in previous years.
