Safeguarding our environment

We care about our environmental impact

ENVIRONMENT

As a UK insurer, our environmental impacts are small in comparison to many other businesses

Regardless, we've seen unprecedented coverage of the damage humans are inflicting on the planet. 

We have a duty to treat our impact on the environment seriously and we've taken strides to:

  • reduce our carbon footprint
  • manage our waste
  • use less energy

In 2019 we partnered with Shred-it

  • They've provided us with new confidential waste consoles which comply with British Standards.
  • They support us to safeguard, manage and understand how to better store and dispose of our confidential information. 
  • The paper that Shred-it produces from recycling uses less energy, water and air pollution compared to creating new paper.
