In 2015 we defined a new strategy, launched with the aim of becoming the leading insurance group in Europe. Our goal is to be simpler and smarter, providing straightforward and efficient solutions that allow us to meet the real needs of our clients.
We are committed to engaging our people and empowering them by fostering a new mind-set and cultural shift, ensuring good leadership and talent management, and encouraging the culture of simplicity. A high level of engagement and empowerment of our people will help us to accomplish our strategy.
Being a leader means taking a long-term view, listening to our stakeholders and focusing on tangible issues through projects and actions that are able to take advantage of the resources, know-how and relations that a group like Generali is able to vaunt. For us, the creation of value must necessarily be a responsible and a long-term process. Our leadership is closely related to the well-being of our stakeholders and our ability to contribute to growth and prosperity of the communities we serve.
Thanks also to the involvement of our stakeholders, materiality analysis has enabled us to identify a number of relevant issues about which we are committed to developing concrete actions and consistent initiatives. The identified issues are the result of an analysis of the scenario, the companies of the insurance sector or other sectors with relevant experience in the area of corporate responsibility, and the dialogue with the Generali top management and, since 2015, also with a number of external stakeholders, chosen for their authority and knowledge of the insurance sector or for their ability to provide original and innovative perspectives.
The result of the analysis process is reflected in the positioning of the issues, more information on which are provided in the document.
