International Commitments to Sustainable Development

International Commitments to Sustainable Development

MAPFRE's commitment to sustainable development is steadfast, and borne out by the company's voluntary adhesion to benchmark international and local initiatives in this field, and in which the company participates actively. For detailed information about these commitments, please visit our Annual Integrated Report 2017.

United Nations Global Compact

MAPFRE has integrated within its management the ten principles of action included in this pact, which the company has been part of since 2004. These are matters related to human rights, labor rights, the environment and the fight against corruption. The results have been very satisfactory, with MAPFRE's Progress Report 2017 having been awarded one more year the maximum "Advanced" score by the United Nations.

United Nations Environment Program Finance Initiative (UNEPFI)

This develops and promotes links between the environment, sustainability and financial performance, identifying and stimulating the adoption of best environmental and sustainability practices at all levels of a financial institution's operations.

Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI)

At MAPFRE we work to integrate these insurance industry-specific principles into our activities, which seek to include environmental, social and corporate governance aspects in business management, whether as opportunities or risk. Within this framework, MAPFRE adheres to the overall commitment of the insurance industry in support of the United Nations disaster risk reduction (United for Disaster Resilience).
