Environmental work in If

If's environmental work is aimed at reducing the environmental impact entailed by the company's position as the biggest insurance company in the Nordic region. Our actions are of great importance since they contribute to an improved environment and procedures, and also to lower business and claims costs.​​​​​​​​​​
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.​

Preventing environmental damage

Supplier requirements

​The suppliers we choose to work with have a greater impact on the environment than you might think. It is a simple equation: at If, for example, working with our suppliers we handle around 350 000 million car claims every year. Without any environmental requirements at all being specified for our suppliers, every individual car claim would contribute to an unsustainable entity in which the environment would be the major loser. Exactly because of that, at If, we require all of our suppliers to meet our very strict environmental requirements – in issues of everything from work materials and methods to emissions and waste management.​
