To be a socially responsible and committed insurer
As a responsible insurer, Societe Generale Insurance is fully committed to the principles of sustainable development.
The impacts of initiatives launched to reduce the consumption of resources and control the company's carbon footprint in 2016 (trend compared with 2015)
For its real estate portfolio, Societe Generale Insurance favours investment in high energy efficiency buildings certificated to the most demanding standards. In 2016, two joint investments in office buildings - one near Paris and the other in Luxembourg - were awarded HQE and BREEAM certification.
Societe Generale Insurance applies an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) policy fully consistent with the general, environmental and social principles of the Societe Generale group. At the end of 2016, 80% of the asset portfolio was rated A, B or C using methodologies defined by Amundi.
The range of Socially Responsible Investment funds offered via savings life insurance policies has been expanded and diversified to take the current total to 54 eligible funds.
In France, Societe Generale Insurance has added two innovative personal protection products to address the issues of long-term care: one for carers and the other for dependent seniors. This twin approach is a first for the bancassurance industry. Insurance policies designed to enable access to education are offered in the Czech Republic, Croatia, Morocco and Romania.
For the last 6 years, Societe Generale Insurance has partnered Imagine For Margo, the French charity whose goal is to help fund specific European research programmes to develop new and more effective treatments for childhood cancers. Working alongside the charity, Societe Generale Insurance is engaged in a number of high-profile initiatives, including illuminating the D2 Tower for the Gold in September childhood cancer project, taking part in the Enfants Sans Cancer charity race, and collecting toys for children in hospital.
