Aviva's Sustainability Ambition

Creating a Better Tomorrow

Aviva has been long recognised as a leader on sustainability issues. We have now taken the next step in fulfilling our purpose to be with people today for a better tomorrow. 

Sustainability is a fundamental part of Aviva’s strategy and integral to what we do as a business. 

This is focused on three core areas – acting on climate change, building stronger, more resilient communities and embedding sustainability in our business. This is complemented by clear governance and decision-making, transparent reporting and by proactively engaging our stakeholders.

Our Charity Partners

To help us to achieve our ambitions, we have three strategic partners under each of the pillars of our sustainability ambitions

Climate Champion

By tackling the twin issues of food waste and food insecurity, FoodCloud redistributes food to their network of community group organisiations, simultaneously reducing the emissions associated with food waste. This activity aligns with Aviva’s ambition to be a net-zero organisation by 2040 and to build more resilient communities.

Stronger Communities

YSI empowers young people to reimagine the world and to come up with innovative solutions to social challenges. Aviva’s support will inspire, enable and recognise their innovative efforts to create stronger, more caring communities by creatively addressing the issues that matter to them.

Sustainable Business

We are trying to embed sustainable business practices and a fundamental tenant of that is the importance it places on diversity and inclusion. The National Women’s Council’s ambition is an Ireland where every woman enjoys true equality and no woman is left behind.
