As an insurance company, we are uniquely placed to help people in times of need and our community initiatives reflect this.
Our community engagement strategy is aligned to our group-wide Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) priorities.
This includes a focus on financial resilience and protecting vulnerable communities (SDG 1), health and wellbeing (SDG 3), diversity and inclusion (SDGs 5 & 10), supporting decent work and economic growth (SDG 8), sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11) and climate action (SDG 13).
The QBE Foundation ensures we manage our community-related activities effectively and consistently, in line with our purpose, strategy and investment criteria. Its vision is:
“To help people overcome disadvantage, strengthen their abilities and live more independently, successfully and productively.”
This vision is an extension of QBE’s purpose: to give people the confidence to achieve their ambitions.
The activities of the QBE Foundation fall into five categories: charity partnerships, local grants, volunteering, workplace giving and in-kind giving. To find out more about our activities in each region, please click on the links below.
