Securing our environment

As an organisation that specialises in the management of risk, we recognise the impact that our business activities can have on the environment.

The threat to people and infrastructure as a result of climate change is an important and on-going concern and we are therefore committed to managing this impact in a responsible manner.

Through our Climate Action Programme, we are endeavouring to be the leader in our industry in measuring, reporting and reducing the intensity of our environmental impact. We have partnered with our customers, employees and suppliers to invest in energy efficient technologies to reduce waste and water consumption. We have made considerable progress in this regard and continue to take steps to increase our energy efficiency and reduce our environmental impact.
