Social commitment


As a company acutely aware of its social responsibility, we want to make tangible contributions to resolving problems in society. We do this by helping people in a number of countries, working with a wide range of issues.

Our special focus: We aim to manage the challenges of climate change that already has a tangible impact on our business. Together with our parent company Munich Re, we support selected projects protecting the climate and achieving lasting effects across borders. With others projects, too, we work towards improving people’s situation in a sustainable way and support them in taking over responsibility for themselves and their environment.

Whether ERGO companies or their staff lobby for the integration of disabled persons, support human beings in acute emergencies or organise access to health care – we aim to achieve lasting effects. This also applies to the ERGO Foundation “Youth & Future” whose staff help disadvantaged young people with their career start. This focus on sustainability corresponds with our long-term business model and its promises for the future.
