At QBE, our purpose is to give people the confidence to achieve their ambitions. As a global insurer with a footprint in 27 countries, our role in the community matters to our people, customers and stakeholders and we are uniquely placed to make a difference.
Our business centres around risk management solutions. Through the QBE Foundation, we want to improve the resilience and preparedness of our communities through long-term partnerships that will help people to help themselves, such as through education and raising awareness around risks so that people and communities are better equipped to protect themselves.
The QBE Foundation is creating strong, resilient and inclusive communities, focusing investment and efforts on two key areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact – climate resilience and inclusion. A set of guiding principles guide our partnerships and initiatives.
We remain focused on our priority UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and our Global Disaster Relief and Resilience Partnership with Red Cross and Save the Children.
