To be a responsible insurer
RESPONSIBLE AND SOCIALLY SUPPORTIVE INSURANCE OFFERS
Customers are offered a choice of 125 SRI (Socially Responsible Investment) funds via savings life insurance policies. They are therefore able to invest in projects or companies whose activities respond positively to environmental and social challenges, while also encouraging a more sustainable and human model for economic and financial growth.
In 2018, Societe Generale Assurances also enhanced its health insurance offer by adding remote consultation (diagnosis and prescription) to its remote medical advice service.

Societe Generale Assurances has a strong ethical commitment to earning and retaining the trust of all its stakeholders, especially, and primarily, that of its customers.
As part of the Societe Generale group’s Culture and Conduct program, all employees have been encouraged - via workshop sessions and a mandatory training module - to embrace the Code of Conduct that underpins the company commitment to best practice in business ethics. A total of 382 workshop sessions have been attended by more than 98% of employees, and 99% have completed the distance learning module.
BEHAVING RESPONSIBLY WITHIN OUR OWN BUSINESS
As part of Societe Generale group’s carbon reduction program, Societe Generale Assurances has undertaken to deliver a 25% reduction in its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per employee by 2020, compared to 2014.
The 2018 introduction of distance selling with electronic signature and the ability to buy car and home insurance online has avoided the need to print 2.6 million pages. Similarly, digitisation of the files used by Boards of Directors and other governance bodies has allowed Societe Generale Assurances to reduce its printing requirement by a further 300,000 pages.
Societe Generale Assurances and its people are fully committed to engaging in practical actions that help to create a more united world.
