The crucial role insurers play in addressing societal challenges has never been clearer.

Partnering with academia to strengthen our insights into the greatest societal challenges

The crucial role insurers play in addressing societal challenges has never been clearer. The devastating floods in Europe, and the global Covid pandemic have all shown the way that insurers can step up and step in. We also believe that we can accelerate the impact we have by partnering with academia in order to unearth challenges and fresh solutions.


Ageas and University of Antwerp establish Sustainable Insurance chair

The pressure to address the impact of climate challenge, cybercrime and digitisation, social inclusion and diversity, the challenge of an aging population, etc. is mounting. And the list goes on.

This year Ageas and the University of Antwerp established a Sustainable Insurance chair to research sustainable insurance. Doctoral student Kristien Doumen, under the leadership of one of the leading academics in the field of Sustainability, Professor Luc Van Liedekerke, is tasked with conducting research into the big societal issues that offer opportunities for insurers to engage


This research project will among other things explore how sustainability may result in new insurance related products or services which can help our customers to transition towards more sustainable solutions

Insurers like Ageas invest large sums of money on behalf of customers. By making the right investment choices we can contribute towards a more sustainable economy. Insurers can also use insurance products to respond to climate change and various other societal challenges such as the ageing population, mental and physical health and prevention. 


The final aim is to integrate sustainability into every aspect of the business. It is about doing the right thing, but also doing it right. Which also means a commitment to good business ethics.
