This is how we in If work with sustainability

If is committed to promoting sustainability, as it is central to the company and its stakeholders.

Partnerships and co-operation

A sustainable development requires partnerships between governments, civil society and the private sector.

Businesses have a key role to play, as we are investing in the technologies, products and, above all, people needed for a sustainable development. A well-functioning, sound and stable insurance market is of major importance to society at large. 

We provide social and economic security to customers through high-quality insurance products and have been working with environmental issues for many years. We are now broadening the scope and highlighting the links between the environmental, social and economic dimensions.

If is willing to share aggregated climate-related loss data to public authorities that want to use the information for research purposes to improve society's adaptation to climate change. The data is shared free of charge. For more information, please contact If's Head of Sustainability Philip Thörn.

Focus areas

We have, based on interviews with customers, employees, management, partners and local community, and other research material identified five sustainability areas which form the base for our work:

  • Climate
  • Sustainable supply chains and materials
  • Work environment
  • Diversity and gender equality
  • Responsible business practices
