Ocean RE’s Progress in Corporate Social Responsibility
Ocean International Reinsurance Company Limited, known as Ocean RE, continues to excel in the global reinsurance industry by driving innovation and sustainability. In 2023, the company entered into a strategic agreement with Moody’s RMS, a leader in catastrophe risk solutions and models, allowing them to incorporate RMS applications such as Risk Modeler and ExposureIQ to enhance business development opportunities and expand their client portfolio.
These high-quality and adaptable tools will provide a strategic view of risk and strengthen portfolio accumulation and management, offering Ocean RE’s clients valuable support in decision-making.
In addition to their technological focus, Ocean RE stands out for its strong commitment to sustainability and corporate responsibility. The company has established corporate governance principles that follow the COSO (Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway) framework, which focuses on enterprise risk management, internal control, and fraud prevention. Through this framework, the company aims to create and provide knowledge to effectively address these critical aspects.
Furthermore, Ocean RE employs key elements of an Environmental Resources Management (ERM) process. This includes a robust corporate governance and a well-defined risk policy that encompasses risk appetite, tolerance, and the use of internal committees to address the sustainability challenges that both businesses and society face today.
In line with its sustainable vision, Ocean RE, as a member of the World Compliance Association (WCA), recognizes the importance of regulatory compliance in corporate culture. They engage in joint awareness activities, participate in open forums, conferences, and events, and promote practical workshops for interpreting the legal framework. They also exchange experiences with other members and specialized commissions in the field of regulatory compliance.
Through these actions, Ocean RE reaffirms its commitment to corporate social responsibility, demonstrating its ability to face the challenges of the future and contribute to the well-being of society and the environment.
