As World Environment Day is approaching on 5 June, similarly to previous years, Citadel Insurance plc is offering a handful of green initiatives and eco-discounts to clients to facilitate a positive change for the planet and ensure a brighter future.
Customers being serviced from one of Citadel Insurance branches across the Maltese Islands from 2 to 4 June will receive a take-home plant to help make their immediate environment greener and to serve as a daily reminder of the need to protect and nurture our environment. Furthermore, on the 5 June, as in previous years, Citadel Insurance will be subsidising 50 per cent of the fees charged by the electric cabs which operate in Valletta. In addition, it will offer return ferry tickets for the first 100 commuters travelling between the Three Cities and Valletta on 6 June. These initiatives encourage the transition towards alternative transport solutions that reduce traffic on our streets.
“This year we are celebrating our 25th anniversary, Citadel Insurance has been firmly committed to promoting environmentally friendly practices and embracing the green transition since as far back as 2008,” said Angela Tabone, Managing Director at Citadel Insurance. “It all started when Citadel Insurance introduced insurance branded products for customers who purchased renewable energy solutions, such as the installation of photovoltaic panels and solar water heaters, or electric and hybrid vehicles.” “Through World Environment Day 2022, we aim to create wider public awareness about initiatives and other possibilities that support cleaner energy solutions for a sustainable environment. To achieve this, we are offering a myriad of benefits to individuals who choose to utilise alternative technologies to reduce air pollution,” added Ms Tabone.
The World Environment Day activities organised by Citadel Insurance fit into a broader environmentally focused corporate social responsibility strategy adopted for a number of years and continue to be so for 2022 and beyond. 2021 has seen the Company collaborate with Nature Trust Malta on its turtle conservation project and a project to distribute re-usable bags in order to reduce the use of plastic. Similar initiatives are planned for the remainder of this year.
Held every 5 June, World Environment Day is the biggest international occasion to raise awareness for the protection of the environment. Organised annually since 1974 by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), millions of people now engage with the initiative globally to protect the planet and the environment.
The Citadel Eco insurance product brand is specifically designed to empower customers in adopting environmentally friendly and green technologies via beneficial discounts. Citadel Insurance has been at the forefront to offer eco branded insurance products to incentivise the shift towards greener, cleaner energy solutions.
“Our incentives provide our customers the possibility to save money when going green. Furthermore, these eco branded products are also available for existing policyholders who switch to more environmental sustainable products such as hybrid, electric cars, PV or Solar Water Heater for their homes and business.” said Ms Tabone.
