The Agria team have pets at the heart of all we do - but did you know that we care as much about our planet? We've been making lots of small, but impactful and exciting changes over the past year, placing sustainability at our core.
We began planting 1,000 trees with Trees for Cities in the spring, to help enhance biodiversity, provide shelter for park users and be a tool for engaging local people to ensure a sense of ownership among the community. This initiative coincided with us cutting our paper-use to reduce our ‘carbon pawprint’ through the introduction of email communications and online claim forms.
We've also made great progress in reducing waste, accelerating digital communications, and we're now partnered with Eco Offset, to measure and reduce our carbon emissions. This way. we minimise our environmental impact to do our bit to preserve our beautiful planet for people and of course, for our very beautiful pets!
Working in partnership with Trees for Cities began with saplings planted in Southglade Park, Nottingham. This is an area of large open green space which is among the 20% of most deprived neighbourhoods in the country.
Rory Field, Corporate Partnerships Director at Trees for Cities, says, “We are thrilled to be working with Agria Pet Insurance and to be planting 1,000 trees in their name in 2020. We strongly believe that what’s right for the environment and what’s right for business should go hand in hand.
“Agria Pet Insurance is demonstrating that they have their finger on the pulse by incorporating sustainability into their business plan and, as such, are a great fit for us as an environmental charity.”
