Agria Pet Insurance has announced it has become the first pet insurer in the UK to go carbon neutral.
The firm has now achieved official carbon neutral status, certified by environmental consultancy firm, Eco Offset, through its investment in globally registered clean water and conservation projects.
Janet Hughes, director of Partner Engagement and Strategy at Agria Pet Insurance, said: “Starting with staff engagement, we have consistently built on our plans to be the most sustainable we can be.
“From humble beginnings of simple, but effective, solutions – from recycling bins to replacing kettles with hot water taps, we have moved onto greater impact projects which have involved the whole Agria team and our incredible customers, too.”
Simon Wheeler, managing director of Agria Pet Insurance, said” “Becoming carbon neutral is a significant moment for us. Agria has cared for pets since 1890, so it’s important that we take just as much care of the world we share together.
“Our incredible Sustainability Team have worked hard and with great passion to help us to
become the UK’s first carbon neutral pet insurer, and it’s so inspiring that our customers have been on board too, playing an invaluable part in the process.”
He added: “We’re delighted to have received official certification and are very excited about the future and the great plans we have to continue making a difference.”
