Corporate responsibility

Corporate responsibility

At Zurich, corporate responsibility is anchored in our strategic framework and aims to complement our business objectives and decisions with a range of environmental and social programs.

Core to our values

The Zurich Commitment and core values embed the principle of good corporate citizenship. These Corporate Responsibility principles guide decision-making and evaluating options in the way we conduct business. In turn, they help to create a better business and recognise Zurich’s role beyond day-to-day business, such as in the community and the environment.

Part of our strategy

Our global strategy includes programs to ensure our actions make a positive impact in all we do, and every community in which we operate. 

Local corporate responsibility

Locally, Zurich is active in investing in the community and each year Zurich staff wholeheartedly participates in a variety of fun, engaging and charitable activities, part of which centres around Global Community Week.

Zurich Middle East employees who participate in these programs understand that make a difference to the local community and are inspired by the experiences they undertake.
