About this report
This report was prepared in accordance with the Austrian Sustainability and Diversity Improvement Act (Directive 2014/95/EU) and covers those sustainability concerns that also reflect our material sustainability topics.
The concepts described in this report correspond to the content of the 2022 Sustainability Report, which was prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards. The report will be published together with the Group Report on 13 April 2023. This non-financial report, which forms part of our 2022 Group Report, covers the 2022 financial year and, thus, the period running from 1 January 2022 to 31 December 2022. 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.
UNIQA Insurance Group AG decided to prepare the non-financial statement as a separate non-financial report (option in accordance with Section 267a(6) and Section 243b(6) of the Austrian Commercial Code) and summarise the non-financial report for UNIQA Insurance Group AG and the consolidated non-financial report for the Group. The basis of consolidation is disclosed under “Other disclosures” within the explanatory notes to the 2022 consolidated financial statements.
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 drawn up at 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.

References to sources outside of the Group Report are made exclusively to the 2022 Sustainability Report, which is also subject to a limited assurance audit.
