Strategy & action areas

As the following graphic shows, the Talanx Group's sustainability strategy comprises two overarching areas – “Sustainability Strategy and Governance” and “Dialogue and Reporting” – plus four action areas.

As an international insurance group and long-term investor, the Talanx Group has long been committed to ensuring responsible corporate governance designed to ensure sustainable value creation. Sustainability is one of the key elements of the Group's strategy. The sustainability approach is based on the targeted implementation of sustainability-related or ESG (environment, social, governance) aspects in investment, underwriting and operations as well as the Group's social commitment.
