Our figures for social commitment

Community involvement has a long tradition at ERGO. Within the scope of our shared value approach, we now concentrate on three global challenges which are closely associated with our key business: mitigating the effects of climate change, improving access to healthcare and enhancing risk awareness.

1 ERGO supports the political democratic process, and to this end it donates to the following German parties: Bündnis90/Die Grünen, CDU, CSU, FDP and SPD. They each receive the same donation amount, an annual total of 75,000 euros. All donations are transferred to the parties’ federal headquarters. In addition, membership fees are paid to organisations closely affiliated with the parties. These may not exceed 25,000 euros per business year for ERGO.
2 Expenditure according to challenges addressed includes donations, social sponsoring and CR memberships (without in-kind giving).
