a.s.r. ranks number one worldwide in ESG Risk Rating by Sustainalytics

Sustainalytics has proclaimed a.s.r. as most sustainable insurer worldwide in the July 2021 update. a.s.r. tops the list of the 276 considered insurers. In addition, with this rating a.s.r. ranks within the 1% most sustainable companies in the world.

Sustainalytics, a Morningstar company, measures how well a company manages its financially material ESG-risks (Environmental Social Governance), relative to peers. This gives the company an assessment of the ESG risks within individual companies.

This assessment takes into account a.s.r.’s sustainability policy, how this policy is applied in practice and how it is integrated into the service provision. The approach to risks is also assessed, looking at both climate risks and, for example, risks related to data privacy and cybersecurity.

According to Sustainalytics, a.s.r. has a negligible risk for several ESG criteria relevant to insurers, including Human Capital Issues, Business Ethics and the integration of ESG in insurance products and the managed investment offering.
