Environmental ranking

Generali's attention to the environment has also been rewarded by improvements in various environmental rankings, specifically the CDP and Green Ranking.

The Generali Group has participated in the CDP for several years now. This is an international initiative supported by more than 700 large corporate investors aimed at gathering information at major companies worldwide about their greenhouse gas emissions and the strategies adopted to deal with climate change risks and opportunities. In the CDP Global 500 Climate Change Report 2012, which assesses disclosure and performance, the Generali Group ranked 80/100. This result is a 12 point improvement on the previous year's ranking, moving the Company from the C band, where it ranked last year, to the B band, in a scale where A is the highest level and E is the lowest. This improvement was achieved as a result of wider disclosure of strategies, a more in-depth analysis of risks and opportunities and more comprehensive reporting on greenhouse gas emissions.

In the Green Rankings 2012, published by Newsweek in October, Generali held 12th place in the list of the top 500 companies in the world (30th in 2011), ranking as the number two company in the insurance and reinsurance industry. In collaboration with Trucost and Sustainalytics - leading environmental research companies - Newsweek produces Green Rankings which assess the leading companies in the world, assigning a score for each of the following criteria: environmental impacts, environmental management and transparency in environmental reporting. The Generali Group received a total score of 80.1/100, improving its 2011 score by 6 points (74.1/100).
