a.s.r. maintains leading position in Fair Insurance Guide

In the update of the Fair Insurance Guide, which assesses the sustainable investment policy of Dutch insurers, a.s.r. comes out on top again. With a score of 89%, a.s.r. confirmed its leading position. a.s.r. received highest scores on 12 of the 14 themes, with the ultimate score, a 10, on 4 themes: Health, Human Rights, Nature and Weapons.

The biennial 2022 policy update of the Fair Insurance Guide has been made up again and the number of themes has been reduced to 14. Across the board, insurers score lower than 2 years ago, and smaller insurers generally do less well than the larger ones.

a.s.r. shows a different picture, with 2 sevens (Taxes and Animal Welfare), 2 eights (Climate Change and Transparency), 6 nines (Labour Rights, Corruption, Gender Equality, Manufacturing, Mining and Oil & Gas) and 4 tens (Health, Human Rights, Nature and weapons). This brings the average score to 89%. Just like the previous times, a.s.r. achieved the highest score of the (in this case) 16 insurers examined. The sustainable investment policy of a.s.r. is therefore rated the best in the Dutch insurance sector by the Fair Insurance Guide.

The Fair Insurance Guide
The Fair Insurance Guide is an initiative of Amnesty International, Milieudefensie, Oxfam Novib, PAX and World Animal Protection and has been examining the investment policy of insurers on a number of sustainability criteria since 2013. Two things are taken into account here: what have insurers laid down in their policy on investments, and what is the practice like? Since 2014, a.s.r. in the first place.
