Promoting transparency to protect the environment

We believe in the value of transparency and seek to drive change with this in mind. Since 2010 we have been one of the signatories of the Climate Change Programme run by the CDP, the prestigious British organisation that represents 767 investors across the world for a total of 92,000 billion dollars of assets managed.

With the aim of improving environmental risk management by leveraging on the transparency of information, the programme asks the biggest global businesses in all sectors to participate in an annual survey on their approach to managing their environmental impact and their subsequent results. The large database produced is then made available to investors and decision-makers.

In 2013 the Generali Group was included in the CDP Global 500 Climate Performance Leadership Index that is made up of companies that stand out for the reporting of their emissions and the improvements they have made in reducing them.

In 2014 Generali Deutschland was the only company in the German, Austrian and Swiss finance sectors to achieve the maximum score (A100) for its excellent performance in activities aimed at combating climate change and its transparency regarding the results it achieved.

Since 2012 we have published the Generali Group Inventory of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on the corporate website www.generali.com, which provides a complete and detailed description of the emissions certified by the certification body RINA Services S.p.A..
