Generali Group CEO, Phillipe Donnet said: "This award is testament to the powerful commitment Generali has toward building a more equitable and more sustainable society, and I am proud to represent all of our 75,000 people and 173,000 agents. Sustainability is the originator of Generali's strategy, and being a responsible corporate citizen is not defined by one action - it is a mindset which every day looks to support the communities in which we operate. We stand ready to promote partnerships between the public and private sector to anticipate and overcome both climate and social challenges, because I strongly believe that a sustainable future requires time, dedication, vision and above all cooperation."
