Did you know in the UK we’ve invested £9million in over 6,000 good causes through our Aviva Community Fund.

On Global Recycling Day we are spotlighting one of the brilliant organisations that we’ve supported - [email protected]

[email protected] raised £5,000 to develop machines that will recycle ocean plastic picked up from local beaches and give it a second life. The organisation picks up between 5 and 10 tons of plastic waste from local beaches each year. Instead of just sending the waste plastic to landfill, they make things that will be around for a really long time, like clocks and fence posts. 

On top of reducing plastic pollution, products made from recycled plastic generally create up to 82% less carbon emissions than those made with virgin plastic. And [email protected] has a good market for the fence posts on their doorstep due to the farming community they are part of – keeping their carbon footprint even lower. Importantly, by clearing plastic from local beaches, the team are also helping to prevent danger and death to wildlife and are playing a part in helping to prevent tiny plastic particles entering the food chain.

Well done [email protected] – we are so proud to support you.

We’ve been taking care of people and taking on big challenges as a business for over three centuries and aim to be doing so for the next 300 years. The choices we’re making today will help create what’s possible for tomorrow.

Recycling our waste is just one of the small ways we are looking after the future of our planet:

🌍 All waste from Aviva offices in the UK does not go to landfill
🌍 We partnered with Olio in June 2021, a food sharing organisation to share food waste from our office restaurants. 
🌍 We work with Globe Chain a Reuse Market Place  to donate surplus office items like fans and filing cabinets to local charities to avoid them going to waste.
