Allianz has been named the highest-ranking financial services company in the latest Best Global Green Brands.
The insurer was 21st on the list published by Interbrand, one of the world’s leading brand rating companies, rising 46 places from its 2010 ranking.
The report assesses brands by consumer perception of green activities and a demonstration of envi-ronmental performance. The evaluation is based on publicly available information and data with performance measured across the sector’s governance, stakeholder engagement, operations, supply chain, transportation and logistics as well as products and services.
Commenting on the report, Richard Foulerton, CSR Manager for Allianz UK, said:
“This year’s ranking clearly shows the progress that the Allianz Group has made in integrating sustainability into all areas of its business. In the UK, we have made significant strides in demonstrating our green credentials. In the last five years we have reduced our CO2 emissions by 39% per employee, introduced several sustainable claims initiatives, increased our climate-focused investment portfolio and continued our support of corporate charities and staff volunteering programmes.”
He adds: “Allianz UK is also a founding member of ClimateWise, a collaborative insurance initiative which aims to respond to the risks and opportunities of climate change, chaired by our CEO Andrew Torrance. All of these activities have helped to increase public perception of our green performance and are enabling us to achieve our goal of being a trusted partner for all our stakeholders.”
