MAPFRE is once again included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index
The DJSI, which is reviewed annually by S&P Global, monitors the financial performance of companies focused on sustainability and social responsibility through an analysis of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. The companies making up the DJSI are publicly recognized as leaders in a social and environmental context and are noted for managing these elements at scale.
This latest milestone bears testament to the fact that MAPFRE has, for 87 years, been working with a clear commitment to people and the planet and contributing to the development of the social and enterprise infrastructure of all those countries in which it operates, in addition to delivering solid financial returns and maintaining the highest standards in corporate excellence.
In 2019, the Group approved its Sustainability Plan 2019-2021, where this commitment was further underscored and articulated across three dimensions – environmental, social and governance – and on a business strategy focused on responsible investment policies and risk selection aligned with the low-carbon economy.
Furthermore, MAPFRE is firmly committed to socially responsible investment and already boasts a complete range of products that meet ESG criteria. MAPFRE AM, its fund manager, has a unique fund in the market, MAPFRE AM Inclusión Responsable, which places special emphasis on the “S” of ESG, namely the social element, by investing in companies that promote the inclusion of people with disabilities on the workforce.
Recently, MAPFRE was included in Euronext Vigeo Europe 120, Euronext Vigeo Eurozone 120 and in the Ethibel Sustainability Europe (ESI) Excellence Europe index.
