About this report
This report was prepared in accordance with the Austrian Sustainability and Diversity Improvement Act (NaDiVeG) (Directive 2014/95/EU) and covers those sustainability concerns that also reflect our material sustainability issues.
The concepts described in this report correspond to the content of the 2021 Sustainability Report, which was prepared in accordance with the “Core option” of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards. The report will be published together with the Group Report on 8 April 2022. This non-financial report, which forms part of our 2021 Group Report, covers the 2021 financial year and, thus, the period running from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2021. Where appropriate to do so, we compare our progress with the targets communicated the previous year and give an insight into our targets for next year.
Since UNIQA Insurance Group AG (headquartered in Vienna) does not directly operate the insurance business either domestically or abroad, measures to address environmental, social and employee concerns along with observing human rights, anti-corruption and bribery issues are conceived on a Group level and subsequently implemented in the operating Group companies. Accordingly, as regards the separate financial statements, no other modified or restricted concept is being pursued in any other way. The present report therefore constitutes the separate summarised non-financial report of UNIQA Insurance Group AG in accordance with Section 267a of the Austrian Commercial Code.
As has been the case in previous year, Pricewaterhouse-Coopers GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft has once again been commissioned to undertake the limited assurance audit in 2021. Further details on the audit outcomes can be found in the audit opinion for the non-financial reporting. References to sources outside of the Group Report are made exclusively to the 2021 Sustainability Report, which is also subject to a limited assurance audit.
