About the report

We’ve written our sustainability report primarily for institutional investors, customers, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), government researchers and others with a particular professional interest in our approach to sustainability.

This report complements our Annual Report and Accounts for 2015. It provides additional commentary on how we achieve our financial success by while taking economic, social and environmental factors into account.

Reporting standards

This year, we reviewed our stakeholder feedback in the US and the results of our materiality analysis to further evolve the transparency of our report, which is aligned to the internationally recognized guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). This report was drafted in accordance with the requirements of the GRI G4 guidelines, including the ‘Financial Services Sector Supplement’ (FSSS), and meets the criteria for a 'core' application level.

The report covers disclosure from all of the Legal & General Group businesses in the UK and subsidiaries in the Netherlands, and the US, with selective disclosure on joint venture in India.

What we report

Every year we identify priority issues by listening to our key stakeholders and assessing them in light of our strategy, purpose and values. Specifically, we assess feedback and queries globally from our customers, shareholders, regulators and NGOs, as well as media commentary. We gather insight from and engage with major investors, through investor road shows and by contributing to various indices and surveys. Our campaigns are a result of how we use the skills and experience to shape new products and understand our customers’ needs for the future.

This is our 11th Corporate Responsibility Report. In 2005, we published our first full Corporate Responsibility Report detailing our performance and targets to our critical stakeholders and have since done so every year. This is a continuation of the 2014 CSR report which you can find in our archive.

We haven’t restated any data or information. We’ve increased the scope of the amount of reporting based upon stakeholder feedback in specific areas in 2014.


This sustainability report covers the financial year from January to December 2015 (unless otherwise noted). In some cases, information for early 2016 is also included to give an up-to-date picture. Facts and figures refer to Legal & General Group PLC unless indicated otherwise.
