For the eleventh year running, Grupo SURA was again included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI) ranking fifth among the 14 companies from the Diversified Financial Services and Capital Markets sector that form part of this global best-in-class recognition. S&P's based its evaluation on examinations of the stock market practices of listed companies, as well as their ability to respond to the needs of their environment and stakeholders through their economic, social and environmental performance.

Grupo SURA’s score was 98% higher than those obtained by all 117 companies evaluated from our own particular industry for the World Index. The score obtained was 78 out of 100, taking into account last year's performance of Grupo SURA, Suramericana and SURA Asset Management. This score corresponds to the weighted results for all three dimensions, that is to say social (77), environmental (84) and economic (77). In this year´s index, our evaluation highlighted aspects such as Corporate Governance, Codes of Conduct, Environmental Reporting, Tax Strategy and Social Reporting. Progress was also made on other fronts, such as sustainable finance.

"At Grupo SURA we believe that it is indeed possible to achieve a harmonious level of development in order to have a more equitable and inclusive society. This is why we have taken on an active role as corporate citizens and are well aware of the impact that our decisions have on our environment. In this sense, we strive to manage our human, social, natural and economic capital in a balanced way, so as to provide solutions that mobilize well-being in each territory where we are present," explained Mónica Guarín, Chief Human and Social Development Officer at Grupo SURA.

Some recent steps that we have taken that reiterate the firm commitment that our SURA Companies have towards sustainability, include the following:

• Grupo SURA has advanced with defining its Corporate Climate Change strategy, as well as updating the Sustainable Investment Policy.

• Seguros SURA Colombia acquired green bonds from the Colombian Government.

• Suramericana has developed specific trend radars on environmental issues which have been delivered to its clients throughout the region.

• SURA Asset Management has become a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and joined the Latin American Investor Climate Initiative.

• We also are supporting initiatives that create public value, such as the Tenemos que Hablar Colombia (We Have to Talk, Colombia) project , the first call for proposals on the part of the Pensar con Otros(Think with Others) initiative for building democracy and instilling a sense of citizenship, the strengthening of local and regional media, as well as pedagogical tools for combating disinformation and polarization on digital platforms, among others.

By being admitted once again to this DSJI World Index, the Company and its subsidiaries have demonstrated their commitment to responsible management as well as compliance with the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations 2030 Agenda, this with regard to sustainable development, the development of new innovation models that contribute to the harmonious development of society and the conviction to transcend mere speeches to help in a “hands-on” way to solve the challenges facing humanity today.

Finally, Grupo SURA, in its role as investment manager, is also celebrating the fact that other investments belonging to its investment portfolio have also been readmitted to the DJSI Index, these being Bancolombia (Banking), Grupo Nutresa (Food) and Grupo Argos (Construction Materials), together with its subsidiary Cementos Argos.
