Allianz operates as an international insurer on almost every continent. We have deep roots in our home market: Western, Northern & Southern Europe. In Central & Eastern Europe and Asia Pacific Allianz is one of the leading international insurance companies. With different emphases we are present in America and Africa.

The past 125 years have not just seen changes in the needs of retail and corporate customers, but also in the societal frameworks in the different countries. These changes have had a substantial influence on Allianz's development.

During the second international public dialog on future issues to mark Allianz' 125th anniversary, Michel Diekmann discussed the need for action regarding climate change with representatives of the United Nations and the Bavarian state government.
