The diversified financial services company has obtained a climate active certification.
Climate Active – a partnership between the Australian government and businesses to promote voluntary climate action – granted ClearView the certification for its efforts in the last financial year.
ClearView produced 1,745 tonnes of carbon emissions in this period and offset all emissions by participating in different initiatives including a forestry in South Australia and a wind farm in New Caledonia.
Managing director Simon Swanson said the certification reflects the work done by the company with a key focus on corporate social responsibility.
“ClearView is committed to being a positive force for our staff, community and the environment. Our decision to seek Climate Active Certification reflects our commitment to improving the way we do business to ensure our emissions are equal to net zero,” Mr Swanson said.
“Another key aim is to improve our long-term carbon footprint through initiatives including moving to renewable electricity, promoting low-carbon transport for eligible employees and advocating carbon conscious selection of suppliers.”
In 2021-22, ClearView will look to continue implementing ESG filters to its investment processes and positive workplace mental health.
The news comes only a week after ClearView announced the appointment of a newly created chief claims officer position in Joanne Faglioni who is leading its life insurance team.
