Of the 9.2 billion euros of investments that MAPFRE has in corporate bonds, more than 7.2 billion is invested in ESG-certified companies. Of that 7.2 billion, 95.2 percent corresponds to issuers with the best rating (above average), according to the main sustainability indicators*.

These indicators measure, among other criteria, transparency and the inclusion of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) aspects in a business, as well as reputational risk. These indicators are becoming increasingly important for the investment community.

It is important to highlight that MAPFRE, within its 2016-2018 strategic plan, continues to make strong progress in its commitment to diversity and equality policies, and 39.3 percent of management job positions throughout the Group are already occupied by women.

Likewise, the objective proposed for the three-year 2016-2018 period of having people with a disability comprise 2 percent of the workforce has already been exceeded, with the figure currently standing at 2.2 percent, contributing to greater inclusion in both society and group companies.

It is also important to underscore the Group’s fixed contract percentage of 97.6, which represented a total of 35,730 employees at the end of June this year.

Finally, it is worth mentioning the effective tax rate of MAPFRE Group companies over the course of the last six months, which was in excess of 28 percent (231 million euros).
