Corporate responsibility

Sustainability is a key factor in ensuring long-term economic success. As a company that operates throughout Europe, Helvetia acts on its corporate responsibility by continuously critically assessing the impact of its own business activities both on the environment and on society. In doing so, Helvetia exceeds the expectations of ­statutory ­provisions and takes into consideration more far-reaching voluntary standards.

As part of an extensive analysis, at the start of 2013 Helvetia assessed the opportunities and risks in terms of sustainability, and gleaned a Group-wide corporate responsibility strategy from this. It focuses on involving corporate ­responsibility aspects in the insurance business, the protection of natural resources and a varied, social commitment at the Helvetia locations. ­Targets have been set in the individual areas of activity and appropriate measures and projects launched. Some of which started in 2014.
