Benchmarks

Our sustainable performance is assessed in a number of benchmarks and compared to the performance of other organizations.

Therefore, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy carries out a bi-annual study, known as the Transparency Benchmark. This study is held amongst the 500 largest companies in the Netherlands and aims to measure their transparency in reporting on corporate social responsibility (CSR). Achmea achieved a relative score of 58% in 2021, placing it in 76th place. Achmea occupies 16th place out of 53 companies in the ranking of banks and insurers.
