Corporate responsibility

We have a very strong commitment to charities, the local community and the environment. Our policy is to:

  • Support local community projects through the direct involvement of employees
  • Encourage employees to seek new ways to support charitable and environmental causes, both individually and collectively
  • Respond to national/global catastrophes and deprivation by assisting with staff fund-raising where requested and arranging for matching of donations or sponsorship in line with the Markel Match Programme
  • Provide corporate donations of cash or time to selective welfare organisations and charitable bodies
  • Organise specific fund-raising activities to supplement corporate donations

We grant every employee up to three days of paid leave a year to volunteer on community projects, and we are a member of The Lloyd’s Community Programme. This promotes involvement in the Lloyd’s community and helps improve the opportunities and living conditions of people in Tower Hamlets and neighbouring London boroughs.

 

Environmental statement

"Our goal is to minimise our environmental impact while adhering to our corporate philosophy, expressed in the Markel Style."

We will use only necessary consumables, and we will recycle wherever possible. We review our environmental performance continuously.

To help us achieve these goals, we stay fully informed about the latest environmental developments and practices."
