The Generali Group is one of the leading insurers in the world, with innovative, extensive, Life and Property & Casualty solutions that are offered based on a multi-channel strategy, while also relying on new technologies. It operates through a global proprietary sales network of agents and financial advisors, supported by brokers, bancassurance and direct channels (phone and web). It aims to be a life-time partner to its customers and lead the European insurance market for individuals, professionals and SMEs, while building a focused, global asset management platform and pursuing opportunities in high potential markets.
Generali participated in the IIRC Pilot Programme between 2012 and 2014, helping to test and develop the International <IR> Framework. Since then, it has participated in the <IR> Network, as well as helping to launch the <IR> Insurance Network. Generali decided to take this approach to corporate reporting as it represents an innovative and effective way to communicate the Group’s ability to create value in a sustainable manner over time.
In its 2018 report, Generali strengthened its focus on the integration of non-financial information selected thanks to an innovative materiality determination process. It also continued to apply the Core & More concept, using this as an opportunity to further innovate around its reporting, creating a truly holistic ‘core’ report – i.e. the Group Annual Integrated Report.
The document respected conciseness and connectivity of information in its different forms, among which the glossary and the cross references to search further details in another chapter, another reports or channels of communication. It also set out the overall value creation process, thereby achieving the final target of the <IR> Framework to have a report that goes through all of the strategic information, regardless of their financial or non-financial nature.
Generali invite all feedback on its 2018 report, which can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
