- Sustainability is one of the pillars of Generali's strategy. We take care of customers by offering them products that protect their lives and assets, but it is equally important for us to help local communities where we operate and to respond to emerging challenges and needs. I am glad that this has been noticed and appreciated - stressed Justyna Szafraniec, Head of Communications, Generali Polska
