Corporate Respons­ibility

Environment

The focus is on the following areas:

  • adjusting the business model for climate change (incl. underwriting)
  • conserving resources in our own business operations

Our ambition:

  • all Group companies actively work on building awareness of climate risks
  • the business model, including underwriting, is being adjusted for climate change
  • CSR Officers continue to develop internal environmental management

In the reporting year 2019 Group-wide key environmental indicators were again calculated:

Heating use in kWh 49,172,287 48,381,772 51,207,830

Corporate carbon footprint in tonnes of CO2 equivalents 35,859 32,439
