Achmea is a multinational insurance company since 1811 and serves about 8 million customers in 7 countries (in Europe and Australia). Achmea has a co-operative background, a proven track record on societal innovation, and is actively working on reducing the ecological footprint of their own operations. The company has been operating CO2 neutral since 2011, compensating for their net CO2 emissions by buying VCS certified credits.

The topic of climate change has been prominent on the organisation’s agenda, due to the erratic global effects which pose an immediate concern. The most important thing for Achmea is the safety of its customers and the mitigation of the damage risks; which, from a climate change perspective, have both agricultural, and urban (human) dimensions.
