From the outset, DKV has focused its environmental policy on climate change, as it has short-, medium- and, above all, long-term consequences and an effect on people's health.
As a socially responsible company specialising in health, DKV is constantly concerned about sustainable growth by integrating environmental, energy saving and efficiency, social and ethical management criteria into its activity.
Environmental protection is one of the aspects of DKV's corporate responsibility programme, which is part of the company's strategy and has been materialised as the company's environmental and energy policy.

Through its parent company Munich Re, DKV Seguros commits to fulfilling its role in accelerating the transition to a net zero emissions economy, as required by the Paris Agreement.
Munich Re is a founding member of the Net-Zero Insurance Alliance, convened by the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative to which it is adhered, and is a signatory of the UN's Principles for Sustainable Insurance de las Naciones Unidas.
As part of this commitment by Munich Re, DKV has raised the climate-ambition level and has proposed, among other targets for 2030 becoming the country's first climate-positive insurer, by offsetting all the emissions generated by the company since its inception (1932).
