Argo Group worked to reduce its environmental impact while empowering the next generation of insurers through a London-based internship program.
College students help Argo reduce its carbon footprint by:
- Prioritizing ESG initiatives at Argo. The group helped align ESG initiatives across the company, which impressed intern Efetobore Efemini. “I think ESG isn’t necessarily a widely considered topic,” he said. “But I definitely say it is at Argo.”
- Promoting greener commuting methods. According to intern Minhaz Rahman, ESG issues are a big risk factor “not just for Argo and insurers, but globally for all companies.” By addressing indirect emissions from commuting, the group brought focus to this often-overlooked issue.
- Reducing consumption both in and out of the office. “We thought of innovative ways from the bottom-up to influence company culture,” says intern Sophie Washbrook. The team promoted sustainable clothing options and encouraged employees to use reusable dishes for food and drinks.
