Doing the right thing
Sustainability is something we hear about more and more often, and certainly a topical subject. We think it’s important and critical to business success, but here at Gallagher, we prefer to think of sustainability a little more practically – we consider it ‘doing the right thing’. We think in order to truly be a sustainable organisation we need to do the right thing by not just our business, but also our people, our communities and our environment.
One of the World's Most Ethical Companies
Gallagher is committed to ethical business practice and has been recognised as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by the international Ethisphere Institute for six consecutive years from 2012‒2017. We’re the only insurance broker in the world to have earned this accolade - an achivement we're very proud of. Our commitment to ethical business and client advocacy is also enshrined in our company ethos, as exemplified by the tenets laid out in The Gallagher Way.
Corporate social responsibility
Gallagher actively supports a range of good causes and charities. In 2016-17 our partner charity was the Jodi Lee Foundation for which we have raised more than $100,000. We have also been long-time supporters of the Movember Foundation and have raised more than $115,000 for the cause since 2008.
To mark our 90th anniversary in 2017, our business globally has pledged to give 90,000 hours of service back to our collective communities. Here in Australia we have been active in supporting a range of good causes as part of that pledge - several of which you can read about on the Gallagher blog.
We take environmental impact into account in both our major purchase decisions and everyday operations. Our initiatives include:
- Choosing the most energy-efficient office building for our office refits
- Using low-wattage, motion-activated overhead office lights in our largest offices
- Sourcing office fitout materials from an accredited Australian-based sustainable supplier
- Actively participate in the global Earth Hour initiative
- All of our medium and large office locations feature hot/chilled water dispensing units to reduce need for bottled water
- Recycling waste office paper at all sites
- Recycling printer and photocopier toners
We actively seek to do the right thing by our environment and reduce our environmental footprint. We look forward to keeping you updated on our progress!
