Our Commitment to SRI

The Generali Group has paid great attention to sustainable development since 2006, applying an ethical filter to all investments. The Group is continuing its commitment based on the conviction that:

  • Taking into account and foreseeing risks is at the heart of the insurance business
  • Preventing main systemic risks is key to preserve capital and create financial value

Generali proved its commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility and SRI signing the UN Global Compact in 2007, the PRI in 2011. The Group is also included in the FTSE4Good Global Index and in the FTSE4Good Europe Index and ASPI Eurozone Index.

Following the Group’s commitment to sustainable development and SRI topics, Generali Investments Europe set up a dedicated team of SRI analysts and developed a proprietary methodology for ESG analysis applied to € 26.5 bn* under management. The company is a member of the international workshops on SRI as EUROSIF, FIR and FFS and AFG.

On September 25th, 2015, the GIS European S.R.I Equity fund has been awarded with the Novethic SRI Label recognition.
