Allianz is a purpose led business, since 1890, all around the globe we have been aiming to enrich people’s lives through innovations and make a positive impact on society through a wide range of products, services and solutions that give courage to our customers for what’s ahead as well as contribute to a more sustainable planet.
As we aim to be the trusted partner of our stakeholders, the importance of delivering solutions that positively contribute to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is very clear. Over the years, we have actively integrated SDGs into our work and partnerships, utilizing our resources to address issues such as nutrition, hygiene and climate change. We are also increasingly recognizing the need to integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into all aspects of assessing and managing risk and opportunity.
This commitment extends to Sri Lanka as well where being a responsible and sustainable company is at the foundation of our business. We have made great strides in reducing our own carbon footprint, helping our customers adopt more sustainable behaviours, supporting employee wellbeing and helping communities become more resilient.
Our initiatives in Sri Lanka are primarily based around securing a more sustainable and safer future for every child. The recent global and local conditions have exacerbated threats to the most vulnerable groups in our society and created new risks to their lives and futures. Therefore, at Allianz Sri Lanka we have an unrelenting desire to make ourselves useful and bring smiles to our future generations.
We are also working to equip our own people for the future. As the way we all work is constantly changing, we are making efforts to create an inclusive environment where every person at Allianz is encouraged and supported to reach their full potential. It is critical for our future to build an organization that is deeply valued by its people. Furthermore, we are investing in a culture of innovation where every employee is empowered to play an integral role in driving sustainability and innovation efforts.
As industry leaders we will continue to inspire action every day and collaborate with diverse stakeholders to collectively tackle complex sustainability challenges and create a better future for the communities we serve and the world at large.
