We are a ‘Pioneer’ company

16 Dec 2010

We are pleased to announce for the first time we have been placed within Ethibel’s Sustainability Index with ‘Pioneer’ status. At Aviva we are committed to being a company that acts responsibly for the long term and we are proud that our efforts have been recognised in this way.

Aviva have been members of the Ethibel Sustainability Index since 2003, which includes companies that show a better than average performance in terms of corporate sustainability and responsibility in their sector. In addition, Pioneer status is awarded to companies who demonstrate leadership in corporate responsibility. 

The Index evaluation is the result of a thorough analysis of scientific insights and social discussions about sustainable entrepreneurship. It considers internal social policy, environmental policy, external social policy and ethical economic policy to assess entry to the index.

Inclusion in Indices like these is achieved through the fantastic integration of corporate responsibility across the business – for example how we integrate CR into our procurement decisions, how we are making use of new ‘green’ technology to reduce our carbon emissions, and how we are committed to creating a gender and diversity mix across our leadership.
