To live up to our role as a trusted insurer, we maintain focus on our top priority – our policyholders. That means looking through the lens of environmental sustainability as we assess our services and operations across the country. As we delve more deeply into this space, our goal is to be transparent as we study Amica’s impact on the communities where we live and work, and explore ways to improve and learn from the leading voices on these issues.
Changing Our Workplace
In Amica-owned buildings, we’ve incorporated environmentally friendly technology, including energy-efficient temperature controls, LED sensory lighting and smart technology maintenance systems. At our corporate headquarters, we monitor water usage and recycle groundwater for irrigation purposes.
We know the effects of climate change are global, but realize it’s at the local level where we can achieve the greatest impact. Through our philanthropic arm, the Amica Companies Foundation, we’re invested in working together to keep people safe and build more resilient and sustainable communities through disaster-resilience grant funding.
With our nonprofit partners, we’re focusing most on long-term recovery to help families rebuild in a way that makes them more resilient to future disasters.
We also know that wildfires, hurricanes and other natural events aren’t the only disasters families may face. Because fires can occur in a variety of ways and in any room of a home, Amica helps the Red Cross equip homes with free smoke detectors. Through the “Sound the Alarm” program, we’ve supported the installation of over 100,000 fire alarms annually for seven years.
