  • A commitment to plant one tree in the Isle of Man and one tree in Africa for every new account we open

  • An audit of our energy efficiency

  • An entirely digital and paperless back office

  • A formal constituted ESG Forum to drive action through the Group

  • A Board approved ESG Mission Statement

Our Communities

Our corporate social responsibility

It’s important that we play our part in building a better world for current and future generations. We encourage our people to give back to their local communities, whether this is time, effort or a financial contribution. We are eager to share our success with our local communities. Collectively, our key focus areas are eliminating poverty, health, education and conservation.
Education

Children's Centre

Staff from our operations department visited the Children's Centre farm where they carried out maintenance work on animal enclosures and constructed a shelter in the play area.

The team learned about the difficulties some young people on the island face and the important role the charity plays in making sure they achieve their full potential.

Souper Troopers

Our CEO, Greg Ellison visited the Souper Troopers, an organisation the Group has been donating to since 2019. Our team in South Africa supported the charity, which helps homeless people in Cape Town to get back on their feet. by delivering food, donating clothing and organising a 'Souper Soccer' football tournament.
As a partner of the Isle of Man Woodland Trust, our team have taken time out of the office to plant saplings as part of the islands mission to increase the number of forests.

Woodland Trust

As a partner of the Isle of Man Woodland Trust, our team took time out of the office to plant 250 saplings in the south of the island. This forms part of the island's mission to increase the number of forests and lower CO2 in the atmosphere. We continue to work with the Woodland Trust through our commitment to plant two trees per new account we open.

Women's Aid

We extended our International Women's Day celebrations to a whole week! Speakers were invited to our offices to educate staff on gender bias, the challenges that women are confronted with and the valuable work of local women's charities. Throughout the week staff raised funds for Women's Aid Isle of Man, who support the victims of domestic abuse.

Beach Clean

The team in South Africa got together on a weekend to pick up litter from Muizenberg beach in Cape Town. Joined by their family members, the team managed to fill over ten sacks with plastic and other waste from the shore.

Junior Achievement

We partner with Isle of Man based young people's charity Junior Achievement. This educational charity works with young people to develop their skills for the workplace. Our CEO and Chairman both sat on the board of Junior Achievement for a number of years.

Centurion Walk

Our team in South Africa competed in a 100-mile walking challenge in Stellenbosch to raise money for the Souper Troopers.
