For Línea Directa Aseguradora, Sustainability is a commitment that is adopted at the highest management level of the company and that is articulated in a Sustainability Committee made up of the entire Management team, including the CEO. Its evolution is periodically raised to the highest administrative body of the company, the Board of Directors, which has assigned the functions related to this matter to the Appointments, Remuneration and Corporate Governance Committee, following the recommendations of the CNMV Good Governance Code. Línea Directa Aseguradora, therefore, sees Sustainability as a key issue, fully integrated into daily activities, and undertakes it with the aim of generating value not only for the organization itself and its shareholders, but above all for customers, employees, suppliers and society in general.
