The Talanx Group’s sustainability reporting is based on a number of different national and international standards and guidelines. The Group has also taken other guidelines above and beyond the mandatory standards and guidelines into account as to ensure transparent, comparable reporting.
We have set ourselves ambitious goals in line with our sustainability strategy, which we are continuously implementing through concrete measures. As an internationally operating insurer and investor, we are aware of our importance in the financial markets. For this reason, we actively support a number of important sustainability initiatives. We are a member of the UN-based Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI), Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and the UN Global Compact. In addition, we are working to implement the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Disclosure (TCFD) and are an active supporter.
Above and beyond these commitments, the Talanx Group a member of a large number of regional, national and global associations, interest groups and organisations. In addition, our staff are members of working groups that focus on a variety of topics and contribute their expertise to relevant discussions, including on sustainability topics.
We are using our participation in local initiatives such as “Hannover ohne Plastik” (HOP) specifically for regional networking on sustainability issues and to develop measures to improve our internal environmental management. In Germany we support the following groups, for example: Development and Climate Alliance.
