For the tenth consecutive year, Citadel Insurance is continuing its annual tradition of celebrating World Environment Day, which this year is taking place on 5 June. Throughout this week, the company will be carrying out various environmentally-friendly activities. Among these, customers who are being serviced at any one of Citadel’s branches in Malta and Gozo will be entitled to one free take-home plant (limited offer until stocks last). Additionally, Citadel Insurance will cover the cost of a return ferry ticket for the first 100 commuters travelling between the three Cities and Valletta.
To support customers in transitioning to eco-friendly practices, Citadel Insurance is also offering special incentives on home and motor insurance for those using renewable-energy solutions such as solar water heaters, PV systems, and electric or hybrid cars (terms and conditions apply).
“World Environment Day serves as an important reminder to all of us about the importance of taking care of our environment. Climate change also has a direct impact on the insurance business with the enhanced risks of extreme weather which it generates so it is also important from us from a commercial perspective to do all we can to encourage the use of eco-friendly technologies, and make changes in our daily lives to help restore the ecosystem,” said Angela Tabone, Managing Director of Citadel Insurance. “In line with this initiative, our customers also have access to our bespoke PV panels policy along with our exclusive eco incentives on the Eco Home and Eco Motor policies.”
The theme for World Environment Day 2023 is #BeatPlasticPollution, with a focus on solutions to the global plastic crisis. Every year, over 400 million tonnes of plastic are produced, with less than 10 per cent of it being recycled, and an estimated 19 to 23 million tonnes ending up in waterways.
“This year’s #BeatPlasticPollution theme highlights the impact of our actions on the environment, particularly the physical impact on marine life and all the consequences derived from it. Governments and businesses need to take more action together to address the issue of plastics and accelerate the shift to a circular economy,” Angela Tabone added.
