For us, sustainability means a commitment to responsible and transparent corporate governance geared to lasting success. With this in mind, in 2011, we drew up a sustainability strategy for the first time. We specify here in more concrete detail the higher-order corporate strategy of the Group with an eye to sustainability considerations and commit explicitly to our strategic objective of sustainable value creation. Parallel to our Group strategy, the sustainability strategy is revisited every three years.

Corporate social responsibility and sustainability, together with robust governance, risk management and integrated compliance, are at the heart of our Group strategy 2021 – 2023. In this way, corporate social responsibility builds a bridge between the foundations of the Group strategy and the action fields of our sustainability strategy.

Hannover Re's Sustainability Strategy 2021 - 2023 defines the four action fields shown below and specifies concrete goals.

  • Transparency
  • Core business
  • Employees
  • Commitment

 Our sustainability strategy:

Hannover Re continuously pursues its sustainability goals and reports annually on their realisation in the sustainability report.
