More intentional steps forward on our ESG journey
Our purpose places Environmental, Social, and Governance – ESG – at the very core of who we are. We protect what matters most. We bring peace of mind to our customers. This is our purpose. It helps us to attract world-class talent to support our continued growth, and it’s important to our new and existing customers. To us, sustainability is not a side topic. Because our environmental and social impact, how we serve society and our communities, is inherent in what we do, every day.
2022 has been a year in which we have taken more intentional steps on our sustainability journey. During this year we strengthened our governance and made our plans more actionable, more measurable, more transparent, and clearer to our stakeholders. The results of our materiality assessment have shaped our sustainability and business strategy across five pillars – Our Customers, Our People, Our Communities, Our Planet, and Ethics & Integrity – and 11 topics which are identified as material and drive our action and strategy in an integrated manner across our business operations and functions.
With our talented team, our leading technologies, and the support of our stakeholders, I am optimistic and confident that we will reach our ESG targets for 2030 and beyond and make further strides in sustainable development. Thank you for your continued trust and support.
Austin Lally, Group CEO

This is represented in our materiality matrix:
