In 2021, Athora Netherlands was named the most Sustainable insurer in the Netherlands through the benchmark. As an institutional investor, Athora Netherlands only invests the assets of clients and policyholders in companies and countries which are good for people, animals and the environment. Companies and countries which do not comply with these principles, will not be part of Athora Netherlands’ investment portfolio.
We are extremely proud of this result and our leading position when it comes to sustainable investment. We have further tightened our policy in recent times and that has not gone unnoticed. With the assets that we manage on behalf of our Zwitserleven and Reaal clients, we want to exert influence to make society more sustainable.
