A leader in sustainability

Swiss Re was insurance industry sector leader in the 2016 Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) for the third consecutive year and the tenth time since 2004.

We were recognised in particular for:

Some additional highlights in 2015 include the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund, completion of two new Economics of Climate Adaptation studies in Bangladesh and El Salvador, and insuring the first-ever offshore wind farm project in the US. In 2016, we pioneered the first parametric insurance programme against risks of natural disaster for farmers in China.

We're proud to be honoured again in the DJSI. Enabling sustainable progress is not only one of our key objectives – it's crucial to our vision of making the world more resilient.
