We are committed to constantly improving the impact that our business has on the world through our ESG commitments.


We are Carbon. 

Proudly carbon. 


Some people have asked us, ‘Why the name?’.  


The answer is pretty simple. Carbon is the building blocks of life. Carbon is the most abundant element on earth. Its properties vary dramatically based on its orientation with other atoms. As a diamond it is stable, solid, transparent, and as graphite it is soft and flexible. These properties represent our strength, integrity and flexibility as an entity. Carbon’s bonds are the strongest of the atomic bonds, a strength we recognise in our partnerships. In one orientation its atoms form the building blocks of life, and in another a solid diamond.   


We are not blind to the fact that carbon sourcing, usage and disposal of the past and current has had a tragic impact on our planet.  This is an undeniable fact and one we are not happy about.  


Reversing damage is essential and urgent, which is why Carbon Underwriting supports investment in positive carbon initiatives for the future.   


We are open and transparent in our acknowledgement that becoming a carbon zero business will not happen overnight but we, as a team, are fully committed to making this happen by the end of 2022. 


We are working to continually monitor our carbon footprint and understand our scope 1-3 emissions in order to identify our carbon reduction actions and to set science-based targets.  


We are striving for a positive impact on society and our planet in everything we do, from the way we treat our customers and employees to the business partners and suppliers we choose to work with. We understand that we have a responsibility not only to offer innovative products and outstanding service excellence to our customers but also to manage our business and act in the way they expect of us. 


We are also working closely with our business partners to better understand their ESG transition plans in order that we can factor these into our underwriting decisions. 


We envisage and work hard to create the future by blending science, human intelligence and foresight. 


That is why we are proud to be Carbon.   A testament to the future of our planet which is evident in what we do and don’t do; the risks we write and don’t underwrite; in the partners we choose to work with and to the forward-looking humanistic values we aspire to endorse every day.
