Contribution to the SDGs
We endorse the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) spearheaded by the United Nations, and acknowledge these can only be achieved if business, government and society work together.
As an insurer, we can contribute to some SDGs more than others.
We start by defining our safer communities and responsible business priorities based on our purpose, business strategy and safer communities framework, and we then use the SDGs to help us identify where we can make the greatest impact and how we can partner effectively.
While our work touches a wide range of goals, targets, and means of implementation that comprise the SDGs, we foresee our efforts to deliver the most impact on:
- Climate Action (SDG 13): With our central key role to transfer risk related to weather-related natural perils.
- Sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11): By using our expertise and partnerships to deliver resilient and sustainable communities and infrastructure.
- Industry, innovation and infrastructure (SDG 9): As an allocator of capital, we provide key support and investment in resilient infrastructure, innovation and technology to find solutions to both economic and environmental challenges.
- Decent work and economic growth (SDG 8): Because insurance is a financial service that helps communities to thrive and recover from adversity- the need to support wide access to insurance is explicitly called for in Target 8.10.
