Allianz has been a partner of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) since 2006, and became its first International Partner in 2011. Allianz holds relationships with 17 National Paralympic Committees (NPCs): Argentina, Australia, Colombia, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Egypt, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Mexico, Morocco, Poland, Slovakia, Sri Lanka, Switzerland and the UK. Furthermore, we are the first global sponsor of a Para sport Federation whose partnership is not only financial: we work at every level of the Paralympic Movement, from global to local, to help increase awareness and popularity of sports for people with an impairment worldwide.
Our motivation comes from Para athletes themselves. These elite performers, who have conquered adversity through hard work, self-confidence, and single-minded determination to achieve excellence in their sports and life, continually inspire us. Together with our local markets we develop creative ways to tell athletes’ stories, introduce Para sport to a global audience, and reinforce our message of empowerment and equality across all our communications platforms.
