As risk and uncertainty change and grow around the world, we believe that supporting our communities is more important than ever before. Marsh and Marsh McLennan share a proud history of service and support to the communities in which we operate and our colleagues work and live. Our commitment to building a stronger, more resilient world is deeply rooted in the belief that we are able to help address society’s greatest challenges when we work together and bring our collective expertise to make a difference. Our goal is to drive both business and social impact by:
The long-term wellbeing of society and the strength of the global economy depends on our ability to create a more sustainable and inclusive world. In 2008, our parent company, Marsh McLennan, created an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Committee, comprised of colleagues across our four businesses, to identify and advance our global ESG priorities. The ESG Committee regularly reports on key metrics to ensure our company is addressing the most pressing needs of our communities including human capital management and cybersecurity. ESG is a critical component of Marsh and Marsh McLennan’s strategy with leadership involvement at every level including the Board of Directors.

We draw on our collective strengths to better serve our clients and communities in the face of adversity. Each year, thousands of Marsh colleagues use their business skills to build more resilient communities. Across the Marsh McLennan enterprise, we have partnered with nonprofit organisations in the areas of mentoring and disaster resiliency, to enable colleagues to support at-risk communities. These partnerships also enable Marsh to explore new ways to add value around the world.
Across the region, Marsh demonstrates our corporate social responsibility through charitable contributions, pro-bono assistance, employee volunteerism and partnerships with organisations whose programs and services help communities and people at risk.
Through Marsh Cares, our signature social impact program, we provide our colleagues with access to year-round volunteering initiatives and equip colleagues with the knowledge, tools, and resources so that they can lead change and support our communities. Whether they’re spending a few hours or committing to sustained engagements, our volunteers help change what’s possible for nonprofits and communities.
All Marsh colleagues are encouraged to use paid volunteer leave to engage with, and contribute to, the wellbeing of their local communities. During 2020, there was an 11% increase in colleague volunteer rates in the Pacific Region.
