Held each year on 22nd April Earth Day aims to mobilise individuals, businesses
and countries to change human behavior and create global, national and local
policies that limit the negative impact of climate change across the globe.
It’s been 23 years since the first Earth Day was held in the United States, and the need for bold, creative and innovative solutions at all levels to tackle the environmental crisis, is stronger than ever.
Citadel Insurance p.l.c. has always been at the forefront of driving green initiatives and eco related insurance products which incentivise insurance customers to shift to cleaner and greener energy solutions. Having been first in introducing Eco-car and Eco-Home discounted policies in recognition of both the need to support the environment and the growing awareness of the need to change, Citadel's reputation as a market leading, environmentally-friendly organisation is second to none. The suite of green insurance products also includes policies covering Photovoltaic Panels, which save on energy bills while harnessing the year-round long hours of sunshine Malta and Gozo are blessed with.
Angela Tabone, Managing Director of Citadel Insurance, said “When in 2008, we first introduced insurance products specifically rewarding customers who supported the green agenda, we knew that this was not just a short-term marketing tactic. We were then, and clearly still are today, totally committed to sustainable growth and building a healthier economy.”
In recognition of one of the 6 pillars of Earth Day 2023, “The Canopy Project”, as well as to support the local Tree 4 U campaign, Citadel Insurance plc will be planting a number of trees during the next round of tree planting later on this year. The company is also in the final stages of ordering a new set of employee uniforms which, apart from being fashionably corporate and in line with today’s demanding workplace, have also been selected due to their environmentally sustainable design and longevity.
“With the Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions and difficulties brought with it, now almost a thing of the past, our own internal Corporate Social Responsibility activity is gathering momentum. With activities themed around healthy living, cultural awareness, and assistance to those in need already organised, the focus of our enthusiastic CSR team will turn to the environmental aspect of our programme where we should see children, climate literacy and cleanup activities being organised” concluded Ms Tabone.
