SCOR is included in the ASPI Eurozone® index

SCOR will be included in the ASPI (Advanced Sustainable Performance Indices) Eurozone® index when the composition of the index changes after the closing hour on Friday 21 September 2012.

SCOR will be included in the ASPI (Advanced Sustainable Performance Indices) Eurozone® index when the composition of the index changes after the closing hour on Friday 21 September 2012.
 
SCOR has made a number of commitments in the field of corporate social responsibility (CSR), having joined the United Nations Global Compact in 2003 and, more recently, the Principles for Sustainable Insurance (2012). Vigeo’s inclusion of SCOR shares in the ASPI Eurozone® constitutes an independent recognition of the actions SCOR has taken over the past few years as part of its CSR programme.
 
The ASPI Eurozone® is composed of the 120 top-rated companies in the Eurozone according to Vigeo, based on a best-in-class approach in six assessment areas: the environment, human rights, human resources, community involvement, business ethics and corporate governance.
 
Investors may notably use this index as part of SRI (socially responsible investing) or ethical investment policies, to compare the performance of their investments against an SRI index or to create index-linked funds, trackers or structured funds.
 
 
Denis Kessler, Chairman and CEO of SCOR, comments: "SCOR's inclusion in the ASPI Eurozone® index confirms the pertinence of the actions taken by the Group as part of our commitment to CSR. This commitment, which is fully in line with our global Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) policy, has been further reinforced since SCOR became a founding member of the "Principles for Sustainable Insurance", which were signed in June 2012 in support of the United Nations conference on sustainable development (Rio+20)".
