Doing the right thing
Our Corporate Social Investment (CSI) programme enables us to align our activity, our process and our people to ensure a positive and sustainable impact on the economy, environment and society.
As a firm, we recognise that we have an impact that goes beyond our core business activities and, as a result, we have a dedicated team that drives corporate social investment (CSI) initiatives throughout BW.
To deliver this activity in a meaningful way, we have four key areas of focus: the environment, sustainable development, ethical procurement, and charities and volunteering.

"A huge thank you to everyone at Barnett Waddingham; your support has been absolutely phenomenal over the last two-and-a-half years and we're so, so grateful to have had you by our side."
We have an obligation to reduce the impact that we have on the environment and we consider our consumption, waste, and travel to set clear improvement targets.
We aim to avoid adverse social and environmental impact in our supply-chain by reducing the environmental impact from service contractors as well as purchasing products that meet recognised environmental standards.
People in our supply chain must be treated with respect and have clear employment rights; we would not knowingly use any service contractors who contravened any such issues.
Our employees make a valuable contribution through their volunteering. Each employee is entitled to take one working day a year to volunteer for a recognised good cause. We also match any employee’s personal donations or sponsorship to recognised organisations and charities.
Our national charity partner is Mind, a mental health charity that provides advice and support to anyone experiencing mental health problems.
We work each year to raise money for Mind, enabling them to keep helping those who need it most.
We have gone beyond our stated carbon net zero target and wider sustainability strategy. We have invested in the carbon offsetting programme by working with My Carbon Plan and through making a donation to voluntarily offset 1,684 tonnes of CO2e. The project includes offsetting emissions from our office space and travel.
The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) is the UK's only chartered professional body dedicated to educating, developing and regulating actuaries based both in the UK and internationally.
The IFoA Foundation is a recently formed charity, raising funds to support the actuarial community. Its vision is to open every door for the next generation of actuaries and to empower the profession to be transformative in addressing the greatest challenges of our time.
