MAPFRE celebrates thirteen years in the FTSE4Good sustainability index
For the thirteenth consecutive year, MAPFRE is once again on the FTSE4Good, one of the most important international barometers for measuring the performance of companies in terms of Sustainability-Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
The companies included in this index, developed by the FTSE Russell group, fulfill with a very demanding criteria of good sustainability practices, fully transparent and in the public domain. They take into account aspects such as environmental sustainability, and specifically the fight for climate change; the development of positive relations with its stakeholders and support and respect for universal human rights; as well as other aspects of governance, such as risk management or fiscal transparency. In this sense, MAPFRE achieves a higher score than the sector average in environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria.
This new milestone demonstrates that sustainability is in the DNA of the company. Last year, MAPFRE was also included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, which includes the 317 most sustainable corporations, in accordance with economic, environmental and social criteria. Belonging to these indexes is, in fact, a recognition on the part of the investment community that makes its decisions taking into account these sustainability criteria.
MAPFRE is firmly committed to socially responsible investment and already has a complete range of products that integrate the ESG criteria. It has just launched, together with La Financière Responsable (LFR), MAPFRE Inclusion Responsable, an investment fund whose objective is to invest in companies that promote the inclusion of people with disabilities.
