Climate change features on the public agenda of every country and transitions to a decarbonized economy are under way, although progressing at different speeds.
We are working to strengthen our environmental, social and governance risk analysis models in a comprehensive manner, as a business and as investors. We are also identifying sustainable development opportunities for the insurance business.
We continue to make progress in our commitments to the United Nations 2030 Agenda and in our strategy to combat climate change, which is based on the following actions:
- Reducing our environmental footprint. We are measuring our impact on the environment and setting objectives for carbon neutrality and reducing emissions.
- Integrating the climate change variable into our business. We are incorporating the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) into our financial planning, in order to have them fully integrated from 2024, as well as including environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria in investment, underwriting and the definition of low carbon products.
- Promotion of the circular economy. We have minimized the generation of waste in our activity and positioned ourselves as an agent of change in the transition to this type of economy, by promoting products and services and supporting specialized companies in the sector.
- Biodiversity preservation. We are raising awareness and supporting initiatives to protect ecosystems that are more sensitive to the effects of climate change.
