GENERALI Sponsorships

Discover our Company's sponsorship initiatives



As a Company, we want to promote sporting, cultural and social events and initiatives in the communities where we conduct our business. In fact, when we promote the GENERALI brand, our main concern is always the well-being of society. Our goal is to preserve and strengthen local, cultural and environmental heritage through different projects which directly involve the community.

Our initiatives can be grouped into the following areas:

SPORTS SPONSORSHIP
GENERALI, Insurer of the Spanish National Rugby Union Team

The sport of rugby endorses values that have much to do with the values espoused by GENERALI; both are based on respect, tolerance, teamwork, honesty, humility, camaraderie, commitment, self-improvement and passion.

Generali sponsors Spain's national rugby team

 

For all of these reasons, the Spanish National Rugby Union Team and GENERALI have signed an agreement making the company sponsor of the team as well as its official insurer.

The National Team not only wears the same colours as GENERALI; like the company, the team members are also known as “the lions”.

According to this agreement, the GENERALI name will be visible in all the stadiums where the men’s and women’s national teams play, with the brand displayed on advertising boards, posters, programmes and tickets.

Additionally, the GENERALI brand will also appear on the División de Honor National Men’s Rugby XV Team jersey.

 

GENERALI and Rugby are closely connected, so…

 

WE ARE GOING TO TAKE CARE OF THESE LIONS AS IF THEY WERE OUR OWN.

 

GENERALI: Official insurer of the Sierra Nevada Ski and Mountain Resort

GENERALI is proud to sponsor major sporting events. Our goal is to promote values such as teamwork, healthy competition and diversity among young people.

GENERALI Sierra Nevada

Our company supports winter sports. In this regard we sponsor and are proud to be the Official Insurer of the Sierra Nevada Ski and Mountain Resort since the 2014/2015 season. This ski resort, one of the biggest in Spain, has more than 100 km of ski and snowboard routes.

Our active role allows us to offer advice to Sierra Nevada visitors to ensure they enjoy their stay at the resort. In addition, GENERALI is also the Official Insurer of the FIS Freestyle Ski & Snowboard World Championships to be held in March.

Our passion for sports is reinforced through our commitment to supporting and strengthening the presence of women in high performance sports. Since 2014 we have sponsored the women’s roller hockey team GENERALI H.C. Palau de Plegamans. In 2015, they were crowned champions of the OK Liga (the Spanish Women’s Roller Hockey League), making it to the European league championships.

MILLENARY TREES

Birdhouse Alarm Project

GENERALI has decided to give its support to initiatives that preserve the environmental heritage for future generations.

Today, prevention geared towards the protection of forests and nature parks in Spain is a priority. Along with drought and deforestation caused by climate change, Spain is also feeling the negative impact of forest fires, which leave thousands of hectares of burnt land in their wake each year.

To help, GENERALI launched its Birdhouse Alarm project in 2015, its objective being to help protect the biggest home we know, namely planet Earth. Birdhouse Alarm has been implanted in the forest of Nocedo in the town of Llanes (Asturias). This project consists of a fire detection system in the form of a birdhouse. If it detects smoke, the birdhouse sends a message with the location to emergency services. This allows fire fighters to respond in less than 30 minutes, making this early detection system one of the fastest available.

The birdhouse has no impact on the environment as the roof is made of recycled wood and runs on solar energy. Completely integrated in the forest environment, the birdhouse also doubles as a nest for birds.

As part of our commitment to continued protection of the environment, we have made use of this technology in the protection of millenary trees that are part of our heritage. A rarity in Spain, these trees are more than one thousand years old. The first thousand-year-old tree protected using the Birdhouse Alarm system was one located in the Tejedelo forest in the town of Requejo de Sanabria (Zamora).
 

Similarly, as part of our commitment to the environment, Generali offers all of its customers the option of receiving their documents and information digitally, thereby reducing paper consumption.

Generali’s Go! Programme

GENERALI is also committed to culture. Our activity in this realm ranges from sponsorship of exhibitions and museums to the promotion of a “living culture” through the support and collaboration with students from various universities. Because talent is there, we just need to nurture it.



This is precisely what our GO! Programme (part of GENERALI Opportunities) is about: creating opportunities and bringing them closer to the students of Universidad San Pablo CEU to help them make their choices a little easier for them.

With this objective in mind, we introduce students to the world of business, reflecting upon the trends seen in organisations and how they affect the field of insurance with the help of GENERALI’s top executives as well as consultants and business gurus such as Emilio Duró.

GENERALI is committed to integration, inclusion in the workplace, and diversity. Social initiatives serve to improve the society we live in, as well as raising awareness and increasing sensitivity among both present and future generations.

Día de Reforestación

That is why, for 10 years now, GENERALI has worked with the Adecco Foundation, a non-profit committed to the integration into the workplace of people with disabilities. The huge range of initiatives include, particularly, the following:
 
  • GENERALI aids the relatives of company employees with disabilities.
  • The Company organises days when employees volunteer to work with people with disabilities. Outstanding among these initiatives is Reforestation Day. These events enhance the team spirit and integration, as well as enabling trees to be planted in particularly damaged areas.
  • Jobs have been adapted to enable people with disabilities to be taken on.
  • GENERALI takes part in awareness-raising campaigns such as the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (December 3).
The Company also awards an annual prize to an association working for the well-being and development of the society: the "Solidarity Insurance Awards", organised in cooperation with INESE.

Similarly, GENERALI takes part every year in the charitable event "Dear Three Kings", ensuring that the children of needy families do not go without their Christmas presents.

Finally, GENERALI supports and promotes such global initiatives as The Day Without Light and environmental conservation campaigns.

Superdogs



The problem of abandoned dogs in Spain affects 120,000 dogs each year. At GENERALI we worry about the things that worry you. That is why we have set out to alleviate this problem by promoting the responsible adoption of dogs. We want to give them a place to live while also helping to make our customers’ homes safer. To facilitate this adoption, and with the help of a canine association, we these train dogs to acquire useful skills and turn them into Superdogs!

Juegaterapia

At GENERALI we are committed to society and especially to children, which is why we collaborate with Fundación Juegaterapia.
We have collaborated with this organisation in the refurbishment of disused hospital rooftops to turn them into beautiful gardens where children admitted as patients can play outdoors. And in order to uplift the spirits of children subjected to long periods of isolation, we also collaborate to transform their hospital rooms into "Lunar Stations". These are educational rooms equipped with the latest technological advances where sick children can have fun while under the hospital’s care.

Food Bank

Generali’s Food Bank Initiative

At GENERALI we are concerned about social inequality. It is for this reason that we have launched the Food Bank initiative aimed at collecting as much food as possible for distribution to soup kitchens. In 2017, we managed to collect more than 20,000 kg of food thanks to one of the company’s main strengths: our branches, which are distributed throughout Spain and full of employees and intermediaries who are committed to this social cause.
