The SXI Switzerland Sustainability 25 index (SSUSTX) measures the performance of Swiss companies that are considered particularly sustainable, as measured by the criteria used in Inrate’s ESG impact rating. The 25 companies with the highest score are selected from the SMI Expanded index. The index’s components are updated annually in September. “We are delighted to join the SXI Switzerland Sustainability 25 index as it demonstrates that we are on the right track with our holistic approach to sustainability,” says Kim Berrendorf, Sustainability Manager at Baloise.
Sustainability is firmly embedded in our Simply Safe corporate strategy. Since 2022, we have been applying environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) factors in our underwriting guidelines. We also pursue a sustainable approach as regards purchasing goods and using resources. Our procurement policies therefore require the services provided by third parties to be based on principles of sustainability. Moreover, we also invest our insurance assets and client assets responsibly. We are confident that this aspect of our investment process has a positive impact on the risk/return profile. It also enables us to reduce ESG risks that have an adverse financial impact.
