Climate action

Responsible investing has many aspects. A holistic Responsible Investing strategy should also consider climate-related activities as an integral part. With ours, we actively support the transition to a net-zero emissions economy and mitigate climate-related risks.

Our approach

Swiss Re is a long-term investor. As a result, it is important that we also take a long-term view on the risk factors that may have an adverse impact on our portfolio, such as climate change. We therefore address climate change to make our portfolio more resilient.

As a founding member of the UN-convened Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance (AOA) launched in 2019, we are committed to having a net-zero emissions investment portfolio by 2050 in accordance with Article 2.1c of the Paris Agreement. Through our dedicated climate actions, we are working to achieve this by setting intermediate targets every five years and regularly reporting on progress.
