Life insurer Allianz PNB Life endorses sustainability through projects and programs such as Allianz Healthbox and the Ride Safe campaign, a top executive said Wednesday.
Allianz PNB Life chief marketing officer and head of sustainability Gino Riola said the firm aimed to go beyond raising awareness about sustainability.
“We don’t come here as people who say we have all the answers. It’s a very complex topic,” Riola said.
Riola said the firm’s contribution to the sustainability dialog was not about having edges over other insurance companies, but about looking for partnerships with like-minded organizations to help ensure the campaign’s societal impact and relevance.
“[Having] experts from other countries who can weigh in on topics not to provide answers, but to start the dialog and guide the conversations [is] part of what we do also,” he said.
Allianz PNB Life head of business development Marjowyn Vito agreed with Riola, as he underscored the importance of “walking the talk” in promoting advocacies by translating it into relevant programs.
“When you really live and breathe your advocacy, it has a better impact not just on the employees but it radiates and that it has a better result at the end of the day,” Vito said.
“[In] the end, that’s true authenticity of advocating for sustainability and we would be happy [if] more companies also do that,” she said.
Allianz PNB Life will soon launch Ride Safe 2.0, an extension of its Ride Safe campaign that entails free training for bike mechanics in terms of running a business.
The company unveiled its Allianz Ride Safe mural in Makati City in October and teamed up with the local government of Manila in 2021 to install bike racks designed to showcase the history of the city’s notable landmarks.
Riola said the firm would also push for the advocacy of inclusion in sports in line with Allianz’s eight-year worldwide partnership with the Olympic Movement which began in 2021.
