Community & Environmental Policies
We support charities and communities both locally and across the globe through donations and sponsorship. We regularly support our charity partner, run fundraising events, and encourage company participation and initiatives to support causes that strengthen our society. We also encourage our employees with their own charitable initiatives, provide volunteering opportunities for our staff and allocate time for them to help local causes, and those close to their hearts.
ASL have a long-term vision to minimise the impact on the environment. We strive to continuously improve our processes and implement best practice by ensuring our operations are sustainable and efficient.
We consider the environmental impact of all our business decisions. Our business is paperless, and we use electronic filing and other digital technologies, we recycle our waste, and use energy saving technology to decrease our carbon impact. Where possible we reuse, or donate, used office equipment. When we do need to dispose of old equipment we do so in the most environmentally friendly manner. We take account of sustainability criteria in our purchasing policies and consider environmental impact when on‑boarding suppliers.
International communication is key to our business of dealing with claims all over the world. We do this through video conferencing, phone, and email communications. Travel is sometimes necessary, and when we do travel, we ensure that the most sustainable mode and routes of travel are used.
ASL’s ESG committee regularly monitors our environmental impact by undertaking periodic reviews of the business to identify and implement improvements. We aim to build awareness of environmental responsibility amongst our employees; for example, by encouraging participation in our cycle to work scheme.
We are certified as a Carbon Neutral business by Carbon Neutral Britain, who we have worked with since 2021 to measure, monitor and reduce our carbon footprint.
