Argo Group is committed to maintaining the highest standards of environmental management performance and adopting a long-term sustainable approach to caring for and safeguarding the environment as it relates to its business operations.
The two key Environmental Management objectives are to minimize the impact of Argo’s business operations on the environment in terms of using the principles of reducing, reusing, and recycling of materials to mitigate as far as is reasonably practicable the depletion of natural resources. Secondly, to focus on improving energy efficiency in the buildings, we operate from using energy conservation best practices. Such measures reduce energy costs as well as supporting innovative technology solutions.
To this end Argo Group has established a formal Environmental Management Policy, the owner of which is the Group Chief Risk Officer (CRO), who acts as the formal lead for the Environmental Management System (EMS). The CRO reports directly to the Chief Executive and Board Risk & Capital Committee on environmental management matters.
