For Delta Lloyd Group, sustainability represents the ambition to promote the development of our employees and society (people), a healthy environment (planet) and profitable economic growth (profit).
In the past, corporate social responsibility (CSR) was often seen as a separate issue that had no direct bearing on a company's actual business operations. CSR efforts were typically focused on such issues as energy and paper consumption, good employment practices (formerly the social annual report) and community activities. Meanwhile, Delta Lloyd Group has come to the conviction that this approach is too narrow. To reflect our broader vision, we now use the term 'sustainability' and have integrated the sustainability report with the financial annual report. Sustainability is, first and foremost, about the way we do business, develop and sell products, and provide services. For Delta Lloyd Group, sustainability represents the ambition to promote the development of our employees and society (people), a healthy environment (planet) and profitable economic growth (profit).
Sustainability backed up with sustainable products is a winning combination that creates commercial opportunities. This is clearly a growing market, given that an increasing number of consumers consider financial sustainability the decisive criterion in their purchasing and investment decisions. By redefining our sustainability policy for the future, we are sending out a clear signal to Delta Lloyd Group's stakeholders (customers, employees, intermediaries, shareholders, suppliers, business partners, regulators and civil society organisations) about what the Group means by sustainability and how sustainability has been embedded in the organisation.
Delta Lloyd Group has stated its ambition to be included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index in 2012.
