Swedbank Försäkring – on Sustainability

Working for a sustainable future is, among other things, about promoting future health and financial security. This is exactly what we do, every day, through our products. In addition to long-term insurance products, we also have the opportunity, and the responsibility, to make a difference through our investments. We believe that the long-term sustainable is also the long-term profitable - for us as a company, for our customers and even for our planet. We at Swedbank Försäkring think and act for tomorrow - because we want you, your family, and the planet to be able to look forward to a secure future.

As an insurance company, we can have a positive influence on the direction by creating conditions for our policyholders to make sustainable choices. Therefore, we focus on clear information about how we take sustainability into account in our investment decisions and how we strive to offer sustainable funds for policyholders to choose from when making their own investment decisions.

We are committed to supporting both the Paris Agreement on climate change and the UN's global sustainability goals. These commitments are indicative of our work and our impact towards 2030 and beyond.

What is sustainability?

By "sustainability" Swedbank Försäkring refers to "sustainable development". Our definition of sustainable development is a "development that meets the needs of today without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs" *. Swedbank Insurance includes economic, social, environmental, and ethical aspects within the definition of sustainability. This means respect for and protection of the environment, human rights, labour law and business ethics.
