Our Sustainability Topics

We currently address a total of nine Sustainability Topics, established through our materiality assessment. They include the three key ambitions of our Group Sustainability Strategy.

A key question for any company committed to enabling sustainable progress is what this means for its own business and industry: which topics are "material" to achieving this goal? Based on our materiality assessment, we have defined nine Sustainability Topics:

  • Mitigating climate risk and advancing the energy transition
  • Building societal resilience
  • Driving affordable insurance with digital solutions
  • Managing sustainability risks
  • Investing responsibly
  • Driving sustainable operations
  • Engaging our people
  • Ensuring good corporate governance and compliance
  • Fostering resilient societies: the Swiss Re Foundation

For all of these topics we have set targets – some of them quantitative, others qualitative. In our Sustainability Report you can view a detailed overview of the topics, with brief descriptions, their main links to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), our targets, and what we have achieved in the reporting year.
