Corporate Responsibility Report


Corporate Social Responsibility​

As New Zealand’s leading life insurer, we have been taking care of New Zealanders for the past 25 years when they need us the most.

Corporate responsibility in regards to the way we do business and our role in society is a key business focus. In order to report on corporate responsibility in a meaningful way, we conducted research in early 2016 to determine which economic, environmental and social impacts are most relevant to our customers and other stakeholders.


As CEO, it is particularly important to me that every staff member understands the role they play in making a difference to our customers, are respected in the workplace, and can balance work with the things that are important to them.

Through our commitment to the United National Global Compact we are sending a very clear message that human rights are a priority for Sovereign and we will continue to integrate the ten principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption into our company culture.

Nick Stanhope
CEO, Sovereign


We are proud to commit to the United Nations Global Compact and integrate the ten principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption into our business. Our goal is to make the Global Compact and its principles part of the strategy and operations of our company.

The Sovereign Corporate Responsibility Approach reflects Sovereign’s broad strategic direction. The approach is based on two key pillars – The Way We Do Business and Our Role In Society. To find out more, explore the pages below or view our Corporate Responsibility Report.
