Catlin
Part of our environmental policy is to work with underwriters who understand climate change. Catlin not only understands it, but is actively funding research to understand more about our vulnerable planet. During 2012-2013 the Catlin Seaview Survey conducted a 3 month study along the length of the Great Barrier Reef (survey continued in 2013 with major expeditions to study coral reefs of Bermuda and throughout the Caribbean).  Coral reefs are a clear visual indicator of this change – we’ve seen a 40% loss of corals around the globe in the last 30 years alone.  The Catlin Seaview Survey is a unique global study, working with some of the world’s leading scientific institutions, dedicated to monitoring this change and communicating it to the world.
Catlin is currently committing to upgrading the environmental credentials of all of their existing building stock and locating new offices in environmentally accredited buildings. By the end of 2014, more than 63% of global staff will either be working in a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified office or in one undergoing certification, with a goal of 85% by 2019.

BT logo

As part of environmental policy and ethical stance, we make sure that we use companies that have a commitment towards the environment. Our phone lines and broadband are provided by BT who have a ‘Better Future’ programme which informs all the work they do. Specifically, their design stage determines a product’s environmental impact. It affects how it is manufactured, used and disposed of.  BT have been working with the University of Cambridge Engineering Design Centre to develop the Designing Our Tomorrow (DOT) initiative to help designers consider how to improve the environmental impacts at each stage of the product’s life-cycle. You can see this thinking in BT’s new Hub 5 wireless router, which is packaged from recycled cardboard and includes intelligent power management which puts individual functions into power saving mode when not in use. Its slim-line design allows the delivery package to fit through most home letterboxes, improving the customer experience by avoiding the frustration of failed deliveries – also reducing the carbon impact of repeated delivery trips.
