Barbican has always acknowledged the value of serving the communities in which we live and work. We strive to share and promote our values of sustainability and good corporate citizenship with all our stakeholders and local communities.
Our corporate responsibility activities are structured in three areas: recruitment through our Barbican Insurance Academy; charitable giving and volunteering through our Barbican Foundation; and a comprehensive environmental and staff wellness programme. Through these activities, our aim is to ensure that everyone in the organisation does their best to support our market and the community.
In 2014, our corporate responsibility programme won the ‘Corporate Social Responsibility Award’ at the Insurance Day London Market Awards.
The Barbican Foundation – charitable giving
In February 2014 we established the Barbican Foundation to help smaller, local charities with financial contributions and voluntary support.
Environmental awareness and staff wellness
Our environmental programme is focused on reducing waste and our own carbon footprint. We also strive to make sure that Barbican provides a healthy and productive place to work for our employees through a comprehensive staff wellness programme.
