In general, insurance companies have a relatively small impact on the environment. However, we have an indirect impact through our suppliers and clients. In our capacity as one of the leading insurance companies, we have great opportunities to have an influence by specifying requirements for our suppliers and through the insurance policies we offer our clients.
We are of the opinion that everyone, regardless of the industry they are in, must take their responsibility.
We consider that, as insurance companies, we can and should give assistance and have an influence, because of our know-how and commitment within the industry in which we operate. For example, we are actively involved in promoting the debate concerning a safer community from an environmental perspective and in helping our clients minimise their environmental damage through our expertise in measures to prevent damage.
