About this report


Horace Mann follows the GRI standards, an internationally recognized standardized framework for disclosing economic, environmental and social performance. The 2018–2019 report has been prepared in accordance with the GRI standards core option. We provide information on additional disclosures where data is available. The GRI Index shows where specific GRI disclosures are located, either within this report or within our other corporate reports. We also consulted the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) standards for insurance companies.
