Brunel Group are proud to be a leader in the industry on environmental issues. As the insurance industry and the public alike become increasingly aware of environmental issues, Brunel is being recognised for its longstanding commitment to sustainability.
Brunel Professions (part of the Brunel Group) is also the first specialist professional indemnity insurance broker to offset emissions from our business activity and the rest of the Group are following suit. Brunel has committed to a quarterly assessment of its carbon footprint and offsets the emissions through Pure, the clean planet trust, including all travel and commuting by staff, as well as office power consumption.
In addition, we have taken key steps to becoming paperless environment, which includes; removing all office printers, paper files, and office cabinets and moving its IT systems into the ‘Cloud’.
“Climate change is a massive issue for the insurance industry and we believe all businesses have a responsibility to play their part in addressing the issue we are taking a leadership role, specifically in the Professions broking sector to begin with, but with an initiative to take this Group-wide shortly. Building our business on a sustainable basis is also an important commercial decision, reducing costs and giving us a real competitive advantage.”
“The lesson environmental change has taught us is that everybody’s behaviour makes a difference and small changes can create big effects. All businesses can easily change some small things they do, which will make a huge difference to carbon emissions and the planet”.
