Torre DKV Leed Gold Stamp
LEED GOLD · ISO 50001 ·ZEROCO2 STAMP

Torre DKV, a sustainable building

Located in the South Tower of the World Trade Center complex in Zaragoza, the building evidences its commitment to sustainability (Leed Gold certification, ISO 50001 or ZeroCO2 Stamp, among others). It is a building that architecturally brings together and reflects DKV's values: being a company that is open to society, the environment and sustainability and that is committed to improving employee satisfaction.

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 sigue el marco de Los Principios para la Inversión Responsable (PRI), que proporcionan el enfoque de la inversión sostenible. PRI tiene como objetivo mejorar la comprensión de las implicaciones ambientales, sociales y de gobierno corporativo de las inversiones, y ayudar a los signatarios de PRI a integrar estos temas en sus decisiones de inversión.

Munich Re not only informs the PRI, but also engages it in a fruitful dialogue to further develop its own ESG strategy in line with the latest developments. To further strengthen Munich Re's commitment to this cause, the Group's two asset managers, MEAG and Munich Re Investment Partners, also became PRI signatories in 2021.

Munich Re is a founding member of the Net-Zero Insurance Alliance, convocada por la Iniciativa Financiera del Programa de las Naciones Unidas para el Medio Ambiente a la que está adherida, y que tiene como objetivo la descarbonización de todas las actividades de seguros para el año 2050. Además, es firmante de 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  ser la primera aseguradora del país climático-positiva (se logró en 2019) y compensar todas las emisiones generadas por la empresa desde su creación (1932).
