Community engagement

Our community engagement activities in the UK centre on three key areas:

Student learning

Equitable pathways (education)

We support organisations that provide education for all young people within our local communities to prepare the future workforce. 

We equip our employees to make a positive impact through mentoring relationships and pro-bono/skill sharing activities.

Food donations

Healthy, inclusive and sustainable communities

We educate and engage our workforce on key societal issues within our communities. This includes supporting organisations that positively impact healthier, inclusive and sustainable places to live and work in a fair and equitable society that has room for everyone to thrive.

Environment (climate action)

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time. We are committed to our responsibility in fighting climate change and are dedicated to reducing our environmental impact on our planet. We endeavour to support our customers and suppliers to do the same. 

At Unum, being an environmentally sustainable business means:

  • Taking steps to understand and then to reduce our carbon footprint.
  • Reducing the environmental impact of resources we consume.
  • Helping our employees make informed choices about their own environmental impact.
  • Supporting organisations that positively impact our local environments.
  • Engaging and educating local communities.
  • Providing green volunteering opportunities for our employees.
Ecologi responsible business


Unum UK encourages our staff to be mindful about the environment and their own carbon footprints. 

As part of this, we introduced optional benefit Ecologi to our annual flexible benefits window in June 2021. This allows employees to make either single or monthly donations to offset their carbon footprint by funding global climate projects and planting trees. Keep up to date with our progress.
