In the year just ended Hannover Re once again provided information about its achievements as a responsible enterprise in the form of a stand-alone sustainability report drawn up in accordance with the current internationally recognised reporting standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). Based on its seventh Sustainability Report, the company’s sustainability performance was assessed by more than ten rating agencies, including RobecoSAM, MSCI, FTSE4Good, Sustainalytics, ISS, VigeoEIRIS and oekom research. Furthermore, Hannover Re conducted a stakeholder survey with an external partner in the financial year just ended with the aim of identifying non-financial matters of material significance to the company’s business activities. In this context consideration was given to the various materiality approaches of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), which forms the basis of the company’s extensive annual Sustainability Report, and to the CSR Directive Implementation Act, on which the non-financial information statement is based. Representatives of the following stakeholder groups were surveyed: clients, brokers, the capital market, employees, non-governmental organisations and the public sector. The findings were incorporated for the first time into the Group non-financial information statement, which is part of the Group management report.
