We embrace our environment

At Farm Mutual Re, we have implemented ‘green’ initiatives that assist in reducing our carbon footprint. We take pride in being environmentally responsible and consider the impact on the environment in all our decisions. Our goal is to become a leader in environmental stewardship for our community and the insurance industry.

We are a bronze pledging member of Sustainable Waterloo Region and our building was constructed to meet LEED® (Leadership in Energy Environmental Design) certification . In 2011 our building earned the LEED Gold designation.

We give back to our community

Supporting our community is a large part of Farm Mutual Re’s culture.  We contribute to numerous charities, and participate in the Adopt-a-Road program.

Our employees are entitled to one paid volunteer day each year and receive an annual allowance so they can support the charitable organizations of their choice.
