We are aware that short-term thinking will not translate into long-term success for us and our stakeholder groups. In line with our value-added model, the focus of our new strategy is sustainability.
Our belief grows from within with our sustainability network: this currently consists of 35 employees from 17 departments across all Baloise locations. The network has the full support of our management and our Board of Directors.
At the heart of our belief is sustainable value creation for all stakeholders, with the aim of avoiding value creation for the few at the expense of the many. That is why we have committed to six ambitions covering all stakeholder groups of our value-added model.
With our shared in-house belief and the support of our stakeholder groups, we can create value for all and play an active role in shaping a future worth living.
We offer our employees an inspiring and cooperative working environment that motivates them and encourages productivity and continuous development.
We make the lives of our customers more secure and more straightforward. By doing so, we increase customer satisfaction and support our customers in their private and professional development.
As a member of society, we are bound by social responsibility as a good corporate citizen. We offer protection, security and cash flow for the economy both in normal times and in times of crisis. In addition, we aim to increase the number of employees volunteering for charitable causes.
For the sake of the environment, it is important to us to further reduce our CO2 emissions, and we intend to sign up to the RE100 initiative (100% renewable energies) in 2021. We also plan to extend and deepen our responsible approach when it comes to investments.
For us, it is important to be a preferred partner for brokers, agents, suppliers, outsourcing partners and innovation partners that share our values and with whom we can transform synergies into mutual, measurable success.
Baloise is an attractive, reliable and responsible investment. We intend to further boost cash generation in our operations, and to pursue a transparent, balanced and profitable use of funds.
