Responsible Investment

Ocidental Pension Funds are the 1st in Portugal to become subscribers of the Principals for Responsible Investment (PRI).

We reinforced our Environmental, Social and Governance practices and added an REO (engagement overlay) monitoring to our open-end Funds Horizonte investment policy to assure this principles effective appliance and constant improvement.

Action Description

We believe that the future for a more sustainable world passes through the insurance sector and that is why we have taken pioneering steps in Portugal in this regard. Our pension fund investment policy incorporates the best governance, social and environmental practices, which are monitored by a specialized entity - the REO service provided by BMO Gam.

Ageas Communities

Pilot in Pombal

Inspired by the concept of shared value creation, the 1st Ageas Community was launched (pilot in the region of Pombal).

We believe that investing in prevention and community involvement makes it more resilient. So we launched this pilot focused on housing protection - a key asset for families.

We are aware of the need to protect housing against bad weather, unforeseen events or other events, while benefiting the community itself by donating to a local institution (Bombeiros Voluntários de Pombal).

We believe that community resilience is a joint effort. That's why we have developed an innovative solution focused on housing protection - a key asset for families. It aims to sensitize and alert to the need to protect housing against bad weather, unforeseen events or other events, individually and for the community, while at the same time affecting the benefits in the community itself.

Action Description

Provide the community of Pombal - affected by the fires and bad weather that have devastated the country - a housing protection solution (multi risk insurance), accompanied by sensitization actions and which appeals to the sense of community given that a donation will be made to a local institution, in this case the Pombal Volunteer Firefighters.

Recycling is not an ambition, it is a reality

Every day, with every action, be environmentally friendly.

The Ageas Portugal Group renewed the recycling process in its facilities, in order to achieve a more efficient waste management, through the placement of new Ecopoints in Buildings and training actions for employees and cleaning teams. This was an initiative carried out in partnership with Sociedade Ponto Verde.
