Helvetia has been involved in social projects for many years and works intensively to reduce the environmental impact of its business activities. With its Strategy 20.20, the Group Executive Board decided in 2015 to embed environmental, social and governance aspects even more deeply into our core business.
Global trends such as climate change and demographic, technological and regulatory developments shape our environment and require forward-thinking approaches. We have responded to these challenges with our CR Strategy 20.20 and have created the framework for the CR activities of the Helvetia Group. It supports the goals of the Helvetia 20.20 strategy as a functional strategy.
We want to commit ourselves where we can achieve the greatest effects on the environment and society and make positive contributions with our corporate action. To identify the most relevant issues and adjustment points, we have engaged intensively with internationally recognised sustainability and industry standards and asked our internal and external stakeholders for their assessment.
The result is our CR Materiality Matrix, which contains the ten most important topics on which we focus our commitment. It forms the basis for the CR Strategy 20.20.
