Allianz Holds Global Sustainability Training Program

Global insurance leader Allianz continues to strengthen its commitment to sustainability by empowering its employees and developing them into champions for the cause through the Allianz Sustainability Training program. The online program was launched worldwide on September 19.

The program was created by the Allianz Global Sustainability Team, together with its colleagues from AZ Consulting and AZU. As one of the companies at the forefront of sustainability, the goal of the program is to align with EU Legislation and other regulators on sustainability integration and transform employees of the Allianz Group into ambassadors of the advocacy.

The training program is hosted by AZU and is currently accessible through Degreed in 5 different languages: English, German, Italian, French, and Spanish. It is a voluntary program with a certificate of completion and no participation fees, and is available to all Allianz employees around the world, including the Philippines.
“The Allianz Sustainability Training program is a very exciting new project launched by the Allianz Group in the hopes that every single one of us under the Allianz umbrella has the same, clear vision when it comes to sustainability,” said Allianz PNB Life Chief Marketing Officer and Head of Sustainability, Gino Riola. “It’s something we at Allianz PNB Life have been thrilled to implement, in conjunction with our already existing sustainability initiatives here in the country.”
Allianz PNB Life has spearheaded many sustainability projects over the past few years. One of its newest insurance products, Allianz Protect, allows policyholders to donate a portion of their premiums to the World Wide Fund for Nature Philippines’ (WWF-PH) Food Shed Farming Enterprise project. Recently, members of management, employees, and Life Changers, together with the company’s banking partner Philippine National Bank (PNB), participated in a tree-planting event at the La Mesa Nature Reserve. Additionally, the company is set to reopen its BikeYard facility in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, as part of its sustainable transport campaign, RideSafe.
Expected learning outcomes from the Sustainability Training program include a unified understanding among Allianz employees about what sustainability is and its significance in the lives of others, how sustainability fits into Allianz’s purpose of securing the future, and how the group aims to create social impact by tackling climate change and integrating sustainability in business operations.
Moreover, employees should also be able to apply what they have learned in their own personal and professional activities, adapting a sustainable lifestyle and embodying what it means to truly advocate for sustainability.
“I believe this is a great way to empower our employees. Not only will it enable them to grow into competent professionals that are well-versed on the importance of sustainability, they will also develop the necessary skills to help educate others,” said Allianz PNB Life President and CEO, Alexander Grenz. “I think that will be incredibly beneficial in furthering the Allianz Group’s goal of securing the future for the generations to come.”
