Aviva & CSR
Aviva is commited to acting as a responsible member of the international business community as an insurer, investor, employer and consumer. Aviva believes that a responsible approach to developing relationships between companies and the communities they serve, global or local, is a vital part of delivering business success. How we interact with the world in which we operate determines our place within it. This statement of corporate social responsibility represents a first step into defining Aviva’s view and will be developed over time.
We recognise that our business activities have direct and indirect impacts on the societies in which we operate. We endeavour to manage these in a responsible manner, believing that sound and demonstrable performance in relation to corporate social responsibility policies and practices is a fundamental part of business success. We are committed to ensuring that our business is conducted in all respects according to rigorous ethical, professional and legal standards.
We are committed to continuous improvement in our corporate social responsibility programme and encourage our business partners to strive for matching performance. We are committed to playing a leading role in the development of worldwide thinking in CSR and achieve this by joining and becoming active in various key groupings, such as the United Nations’ Global Compact Initiative, launched by UN secretary-general Kofi Annan. We now chair the Global Compact UK Forum and we also continue to support the United Nations Environment Programme Financial Initiatives.
