Changing our world for the better takes action
What we do today decides what’s possible tomorrow.
It takes all of us. It takes Aviva.
Words alone won’t change the world.
It takes action from all of us.
Because what we do today decides what’s possible tomorrow.
We’re acting on climate change and helping others do the same.
We’ve cut our operational emissions by 81% since 2010.
And we’ve been carbon neutral for even longer.
We’ve invested £7.6 billion in green assets.
That’s equivalent to 100 windfarms.
Or enough to power 4 million homes.
And we’re committed to be net zero by 2040.
We’re building stronger communities and investing in a future we all want to live in.
£4 billion in housing, hospitals and green infrastructure in 2021 alone.
We also invested over 30 million in community programmes.
It’s helped 2 million people and counting better prepare for climate or financial shocks.
And we’re putting power in the hands of our customers.
Out motor insurance helps you offset carbon emissions.
And our low-carbon pension and saving funds even show your investment ethics.
We’re changing the way we do business.
We’re living wage and living hours champions.
We’re market leaders for flexible working, paid carers leave, and equal parental leave.
And we’re well on the way to having women make up 40% of our senior leaders by 2024.
We’re committed to the planet.
We care for our communities.
And we’re confident about what lies ahead.
Changing our world for the better takes action.
It takes all of us.
It takes Aviva.
