Sustainable management

a.s.r.'s approach to Business Ethics

Integrity and ethical conduct are prerequisites for a.s.r.’s reputation as a trustworthy insurer. a.s.r. is committed to conducting its business according to the principles of honesty, integrity and fairness. This commitment to observing the ethical standards is designed to ensure compliance with laws and regulations where a.s.r. operates, to earn the continued trust of customers, shareholders, employees, business partners and society.

Footprint a.s.r. headquarters

a.s.r. seeks to minimize its impact on nature and the environment. One aspect of this is the efficient use of resources, energy and water. Furthermore, a.s.r. is actively getting to grips with waste management, mobility, energy reduction and carbon emissions. a.s.r. has the ambition to reduce its emissions by 2% annually and to remain 'climate neutral' in terms of its direct footprint of the headquarters. To achieve this, we constantly strive to reduce emissions and the remaining emissions are compensated with Gold Standard certificates.

Sustainable taxpayer

As a member of society a.s.r. wants to contribute its fair share to enable and maintain the very society it is part of. This is reflected in the tax strategy adopted by the Executive Board: a.s.r. aims to be a socially responsible taxpayer based on a professionally implemented tax compliance. a.s.r. does not adopt any aggressive positions for tax purposes.

Socially Responsible Procurement

  • Assessing suppliers on their impact on the society
    a.s.r. considers it important to operate in a responsible and sustainable manner. It also expects this from its suppliers.a.s.r. imposes additional requirements on its suppliers in the areas of the environment, human rights and working conditions. These requirements are part of the procurement contracts concluded between a.s.r. and its suppliers. 
  • Screening
    a.s.r. does not do business with partners involved in crime or other socially undesirable acts such as money laundering, fraud or the financing of terrorism. This may endanger its reputation and integrity. a.s.r. has a Customer Due self-reliance Diligence (CDD) policy that requires screening before a contract is signed. The contract management policy also stipulates that a screening is carried out periodically. If, in the opinion of a.s.r., there is reason to doubt the integrity of a supplier, appropriate measures are taken.
