In which areas does Ageas perform well?

Ageas performs well for our criteria relating to the environment and emissions. Ageas has published a TCFD Report (Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures) which includes a number of targets as well as a Net Zero goal and emissions disclosures.

The above benchmark score that Ageas is awarded on The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Insurance Ratings Table is the result of an evaluation of multiple ethical criteria. Find out more about how we rate.

What can Ageas do to improve its score?

Ageas was only awarded a middle rating for our criteria concerning its Responsible Investment Policy, as it has a 10% threshold for revenue from unconventional oil and gas, and mining and power generation for its investment portfolio, which is above our threshold for a top rating. If it applies for Ethical Accreditation, The Good Shopping Guide would be able to offer some guidance on this to enable Ageas to improve its score.

Ageas is encouraged to apply for Ethical Accreditation. If successful in its application, Ageas would join the certified ethical brands leading the way in progressive and sustainable practices and be permitted to display The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Mark in its communications.
