2 Allianz / About the Report

About the Report (G4-28, G4-29, G4-30, G4-31, G4-32)

This is the fourth consecutive Annual Sustainability Report published by Allianz Seguros. Although not publicly held in Brazil, the company prepares its annual report in compliance with the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) - G4 Core level.

In the pages ahead, the company reports its economic, social, and environmental performance in 2015, in addition to presenting its strategy developed at the end of the year and implemented at the beginning of 2016. The starting point of the entire report lies in material aspects, resulting from the new materiality process carried out in the period between June and August 2016. This way, the report provides an even more current scenario, aligned with the expectations of the company and of its main stakeholders, such as brokers, customers, employees, community, and opinion makers .

To prepare this report, company executives were interviewed to determine the highlights for 2015. All data presented represents the consolidation of the company's overall results in Brazil, considering its headquarters in the city of São Paulo, SP, and its 61 branches. The work was managed by Allianz's Communication and Sustainability Department in the country, and was critically analyzed in terms of adherence to GRI guidelines by the consulting company Avesso Sustentabilidade.

Renovated Materiality
(G4-18, G4-19, G4-20, G4-21, G4-24, G4-25, G4-26, G4-27)

In 2016, we conducted a new materiality process at Allianz Brazil to identify the most important aspects for our internal and external stakeholders - those aspects that generate the greatest impact on these audiences and that are instrumental in the decision-making process for the company administration. Initially, 21 relevant aspects were identified for our company (figure 1), based on reading internal and external documents, industry studies, and the principles of benchmark organizations in terms of sustainability.

Based on this list of aspects, we consulted with our major group of stakeholders for them to appoint the material aspects and their relationship with the company, considering the perception of the impact that these aspects generate and the influence they have on the reality of each audience. Eight members of the company's senior management were interviewed, including President Miguel Pérez Jaime, and two specialists in sustainability and in the insurance segment. An online survey was conducted with 33 people, among agents, customers, and employees. From these consultations, we arrived at a list of nine material aspects (figure 2), which will be considered in this report.

At the end of the process, the company's senior management defined four priority aspects (figure 3), which are those that company management will strongly work on in the coming years.

For disclosure throughout this report, we selected the following GRI aspects associated with the material aspects identified and prioritized (figure 2). The table also identifies the boundaries for each aspect within and outside Allianz - whether or not they are material to all company operations, and to which external audiences.
