Responsible investing in practice
“We make the world more resilient” is Swiss Re’s vision. More than ten years ago, our Asset Management unit embarked on a journey to not only generate risk-adjusted, stable long-term returns, but to also consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) aspects in our investment decisions.
Our Asset Management has been steadily contributing to the Group’s vision of making the world more resilient. As an early adopter of responsible investing, we signed the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and formalised our commitment to this practice in 2007. In 2012 Swiss Re became a signatory to the UNEP FI Principles for Sustainable Insurance.
