Aon Charitable Foundation renews partnership with Conservation Volunteers Australia for a seventh year

Aon LogoAon Charitable Foundation and Conservation Volunteers Australia have been in partnership since 2009 and are pleased to extend the partnership into 2016. Aon is recognised as the leading global provider in risk management services, insurance and reinsurance brokerage.

Aon supports our threatened species program Wild Futures, and provides employees with opportunities to volunteer at significant sites around Australia. During the 2015/16 financial year, Aon employees will continue to improve the health of the environment at projects through dedicated volunteering days across Australia and joining regional projects alongside community volunteers. The support provided by Aon will continue to help native Australian species – in particular, the Carnaby’s Cockatoo, Eastern Barred Bandicoot and the Red-crowned toadlet.

Fostering teamwork with Conservation Volunteers

“When the Aon Foundation partnered with Conservation Volunteers Australia, this expanded our corporate social responsibility to expand into the environmental area. This is an area that Aon colleagues across Australia are very passionate about. This partnership has allowed Aon colleagues to assist in projects within their local city or district to improve the environment or for the welfare of native fauna. There has been a real benefit with colleagues across various parts of Aon coming together to not only help the environment but to work in a non-insurance environment to foster teamwork and collaboration. I certainly encourage other teams to take up this challenge as the rewards both personally and as a team are invaluable”. Paul D’Arcy, Head of ARS Business Improvement, Aon Risk Solutions
