Crawford is looking forward to the sights and sounds of Manchester where we will be exhibitors at the BIBA Conference on 11-12 May.
The theme of this year’s event is ‘our insurance community’ and, like the BIBA Conference itself, we are excited to be back together and stronger than ever after an extremely challenging couple of years.
We have been constantly amazed by the resilience, teamwork and empowerment of our people that has seen us through the pandemic – and these key themes will be explored at the event by Ollie Ollerton from Who Dares Wins, who is accompanying the Crawford team.
As well as looking after each other, now more than ever, it is important to look after the environment. BIBA is taking sustainability very seriously at the conference, and so is Crawford.
Crawford will be exhibiting sustainably, having partnered with Symbiosis, a signatory of the Net Zero Events Pledge, to create a cost-efficient, reusable exhibition stand that has minimal impact on the environment pre- and post-event. Made from lightweight aluminium, the stand costs less to transport, needs fewer people to build and is 100% recyclable. Even the graphics were made with eco-print media, fabrics and inks, and are designed to be reused to reduce carbon footprint.
All gifts at the Crawford booth will be sustainable and recyclable. This includes the turmeric, Vitamin C and D3 shots to support immunity and fight fatigue we will be giving away at our stand, which are sourced from the Turmeric Co, a carbon neutral company whose bottles are made entirely from recycled and biodegradable plastic.
“Sustainability is a pillar of Crawford’s RESTORE values and a top priority in everything we do,” explains Lisa Bartlett, president, UK & Ireland.
In 2021, Crawford took meaningful steps to ensure its processes are more efficient and sustainable, incorporating sustainability criteria into purchasing policies and implementing programmes to reduce energy consumption and carbon footprint in areas from data and devices to fleet and office waste. We are also committed to supporting the communities we serve through a variety of social impact activities.
“We can’t wait to reconnect with clients and colleagues in Manchester,” says Lisa Bartlett. “As life returns back to normal, this presents a great opportunity to look at what we can do better to help solve the environmental challenges we face as a global community and create a better world and brighter outcomes for future generations.”
