Sustainability

Being aligned with the 2030 sustainability agenda, we firmly support the partnership between United Nations Environment Programme and the global financial sector to mobilize private sector finance for sustainable development.

When we first came across the UN’s finance initiative, we immediately reacted with great enthusiasm as this made us think twice as to how we should conduct our business.

Thus, we are the exclusive marine insurance company, member of the Principles for Sustainable Insurance Initiative and the Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Initiative.

Being part of the PSI’s community, we are committed to incorporate the social, environmental, and business emerging issues into our sustainable and holistic approach.

Endorsed by UN Secretary – General and insurance industry CEOs, the Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI) serve as a global framework for the insurance industry to address Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) risks and opportunities – and a global initiative to strengthen the insurance industry’s contribution as risk managers, insurers and investors to building resilient, inclusive and sustainable communities and economies.

American Hellenic is the sole marine insurance company to have participated in the development of the first global guide providing a framework for the non-life insurance industry to manage environmental, social and governance issues.

The guide to tackle sustainability risks was co-led by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Allianz and involved other leading insurers, insurance associations, and academic institutions from across the globe. The members of the Principles for Sustainable Insurance project team that developed the guide include American Hellenic Hull Insurance Company, American Property Casualty Insurance Association, AXA, Generali, MAPFRE, Munich Re, QBE, RSA, Santam, Swiss Re, Temple University’s Fox School of Business, University of Technology Sydney, West Chester University, and Zurich.

With strong belief in sustainable development for the oceans and the maritime adventure as a whole, we entered into the Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Initiative, supporting the Principles and adopting ESG strategies for blue growth.

Endorsed by the European Commission, WWF, the World Resources Institute and the European Investment Bank (EIB), the Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Principles serve as a global framework for financing a sustainable ocean economy. This global initiative aims to strengthen the finance industry’s contribution as risk managers, insurers, and investors to building resilient, inclusive and sustainable blue economy.

As the exclusive marine insurance company, member of the Sustainable Blue Economy Initiative, we participated in the co-development of the guide to manage sustainable development risks for blue economy, which is considered as the first collaborative action for the insurers, investors and financial institutes to manage sustainability issues related to the ocean.

It presents a detailed breakdown of which activities to seek out as best practice, which activities to challenge, and which activities to avoid financing completely due to their damaging nature. This guidance provides financial decision-makers across banking, insurance and investment with a science-based and actionable toolkit, giving easy-to-follow recommendations on how to approach financial activity.

We align with the 2030 United Nations Agenda, as we believe that the SDGs are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. For this reason, American Hellenic has joined the United Nations Global Compact community adopting the SDG Action Manager. The SDG Action Manager is a tool that helps organizations assess their impact relative to the various SDGs and to help them improve.
