Awarded "Responsible Company " 

In March 2021, SOGELIFE was awarded the "Responsible Company" label by the National Institute for Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility, a major player in CSR in Luxembourg.

As an insurer, we have an important role to play in this more responsible future which is taking shape. The long term vision, necessary in a sustainable development approach, is also shared by the life insurance industry. SOGELIFE's strategic orientational aims are to become a more responsible insurer, investor and employer. First, by integrating Environmental, Social and Governance criteria into the company's activities. Second, by promoting positive impact solutions and third, by improving the quality of work life and developing a culture of responsibility. This strategy has been recognised by the INDR through the award of the ESR - RESPONSIBLE COMPANY label in March 2021.

In this perspective and as part of the labelling process, SOGELIFE was required to demonstrate its good practices in 30 elements, divided into the following 4 pillars:

  • CSR strategy: How SOGELIFE has identified the expectations of society and how its CSR strategy allows to align the interests of stakeholders
  • Governance: How SOGELIFE has integrated the essential principles of CSR into its governance and  improve their implementation
  • Human Resources: How SOGELIFE has implemented a responsible HR strategy (caring and fair behaviour towards employees throughout their career)
  • Environment: To what extent SOGELIFE has developed eco-responsible practices and behaviors (preserving natural resources, reducing pollution and applying circular economy principles,..)

Obtaining the label has enabled SOGELIFE to join the community of "Socially Responsible Companies" in Luxembourg, which includes 200 companies employing over 50,000 people.

In particular, the Societe Generale Code of Conduct requires each employee to fulfil the commitments of the Societe Generale group in line with three key principles:

  • Respect human and socio-economic rights and the environment
