Operations

How we’re reducing the environmental impact of our business.

We are acting now for tomorrow by reducing the environmental impact of our business through our people's actions, energy efficiency and on-site renewable electricity generation.

Find out more in our 2017 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) data sheet.

Reducing the environmental impact of Aviva Canada operations

In 2017 our Canadian head office operations moved into a Gold LEED certified building and we are currently merging four other locations into one energy efficient office site.

Powering our operations with renewable energy

We’ve installed solar panels on three of our UK offices, as part of our commitment through the RE100 to generate or purchase 100% of our electricity from renewable sources on a worldwide basis by 2025 (in 2017 we purchased/generated 61%).

Our people making a difference

In our French headquarters we have set-up eight electric vehicle bays, and opened an organic vegetable garden where non-pesticide gardening is taught and a beehive kept. In the UK, we have installed a further 20 electric vehicle charging points at eight of our locations, our office restaurants use fully compostable cutlery and containers and promote the use of ‘keep cups’ with special offers and price reductions for their use.
