Regional Day of Service
Through our charitable foundations and employee volunteer efforts, Chubb makes a positive impact on communities around the world in the areas of education, poverty, health and the environment.
We’re firm believers that positive contributions to the fabric of our communities return long-lasting benefits to society, our employees and our company.
Since 2012, the Regional Day of Service has been an annual event for employees in Asia Pacific to engage in a diverse range of local community projects. These activities align with Chubb's overarching philanthropic themes of improving education and health, alleviating poverty and saving the environment. Participating countries include Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
Every year, over 1,000 employees across Asia Pacific bring to life some 20 meaningful projects through active volunteerism, and in the process, our core philosophy on giving back, too.
2016 Global Day of Service
The Global Day of Service, a tradition that began in 2005, is another Chubb initiative that reflects Chubb’s firm belief in making positive contributions to communities that are rewarding in the long run for both society and our employees.
Observed every 5 years, the initiative in 2015 involved more than 6,000 employees in 50 countries who participated in approximately 250 volunteer projects focused on education, poverty and health and the environment. In total, Chubb employees worldwide donated more than 25,000 hours of their time and service to the communities where they live and work.
In Australia, we primarily concentrate our efforts on environmental activities. This included a conservation and bush regeneration event in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. In Perth, Chubb employees prepared meals for the homeless, while our Adelaide office took part in blood donations for the Red Cross.
At Chubb, we recognise our responsibility to provide solutions that help clients manage environmental risks, to reduce our own environmental impact, and to make meaningful contributions to environmental causes. We also believe that the well-being of society depends on a healthy environment and that a proper ethic strives for balance between sustainable development and preservation.
Now in its tenth year, Chubb's annual Environmental Report outlines the full scope of the company's environmental program and initiatives. The report addresses:
- Chubb's approach to managing the potential risks from global climate change
- The insurance products and services we offer to facilitate market-based solutions to environmental and climate-related issues
- Our progress in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in our own operations
- Our corporate philanthropy that focuses on the environment.
