Environmental policy

DAS Legal Expenses Insurance Company Ltd, which provides legal expenses insurance products, telephone help lines, insured assistance services and other legal services, accepts that in undertaking its business activities it has obligations towards the environment and society.

In support of the principle of sustainable development as well as our own R.I.G.H.T company values, we aim to achieve environmental best practice throughout our operations wherever possible.

Reducing Environmental Impact

We have established, and will maintain, effective systems to understand and monitor our impact on the local and global environment. Our key environmental impacts have been identified as energy use, resource use, waste and travel. We set targets with our parent company, ERGO, for continual improvement with emphasis on these areas. All DAS people are trained on our environmental requirements upon joining the company and this is refreshed annually via e-learning.

We are committed to preventing pollution, not just directly but also by taking into account the environmental impact of resources. We strive to reduce the amount of resources consumed by applying the waste hierarchy as appropriate.

We promote and encourage sustainable travel wherever possible by monitoring and reviewing travel methods and promoting alternatives to single occupancy car travel by employees and visitors.

Legal Compliance

We view environmental legislation and regulations as minimum standards to work to, and aim to implement forthcoming legislation and other requirements in advance of obligation.

Sharing Best Practice

As well as improving the environmental performance of the company, we are committed to providing guidance to employees wishing to pursue environmental best practice outside of work. We work in partnership with our suppliers and other organisations to raise awareness and share environmental best practice advice and information.

This Environmental Policy is communicated to all persons working for or on behalf of the organisation and is available to the public. It is reviewed annually and following any significant changes to the business.

We have a well-established environmental programme, which has helped to raise awareness of environmental issues and reduce our carbon footprint.

Our vision

Our vision is simple, we will always strive to be 'First for Justice' for all our customers and business partners, and everything we do as a business embodies this goal.
