The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent a global call to action to:
- End poverty
- Protect the planet
- Improve political and economic stability globally
Through 17 commitments and 169 targets, the goals seek to drive global action across social, environmental and economic development issues through 2030.
Argo Group recognizes the importance of these goals but is also very aware that as a medium-size specialty insurer, our ability to influence them directly is limited. We therefore have chosen to focus our ESG program on three specific SDGs where we believe we can have the biggest impact through our business activities, investments and community programs.
These are also most closely aligned to our corporate mission, “We help businesses stay in business.”
