Achmea presents annual report for 2016 and informs about resolutions at AGM
Achmea is today presenting its integrated annual report for 2016, providing a view of the group's financial results as well as the performance of its corporate social responsibilities. This is the fourth time that Achmea has published an integrated annual report, combining board reports and financial statements.
The Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, held on 30 March 2017, adopted the financial statements and granted discharge to the Executive Board and Supervisory Board. The AGM also resolved to pay out a dividend on the preference shares of 5.5% of the paid-in amount of these shares.
Annual reporting is an important opportunity for Achmea to reinforce the strong ties with its stakeholders. Stakeholders include our customers, our employees, business and other partners and capital providers. In our annual report we provide a complete overview of our organisation, showing the connections between our strategy, our governance and the social and economic context in which we operate.
The report is structured according to the six dimensions of our strategy map. It thus provides an insight into how our company performs from six different perspectives: as regards our customers, our staff, our business and other partners and society at large and from the perspective of our processes and financial performance. The report is in accordance with the IIRC framework and the core option of GRI G4 of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
Further details regarding Achmea's strategy will be disclosed along with other information at the Capital Markets Day on 1 June 2017.
