Corporate Social Responsibility
Marsh and its parent company Marsh & McLennan Companies (MMC) share a proud history of services and support to the communities in which we operate and where our employees live and work. We commit at all times to conducting business in a responsible way and demonstrate our corporate social responsibility (CSR) through a range of programmes and activities. The core elements of our CSR programme are philanthropy and employee volunteerism and sustainability. Our programme comprises the following:
Marsh & McLennan Companies and the British Red Cross Charity Partnership
Every day someone, somewhere in the UK, is facing a crisis. Emergencies come without warning, and the British Red Cross is there to support anyone who needs help; whether assisting in the evacuation of a flooded household or training someone to be able to perform CPR at the critical moment it’s needed.
MMC are committed to building more resilient communities by offering colleagues the opportunity to train in First Aid and volunteer their time and skills through selected projects. Visit the Red Cross partnership website to find out more and get involved.
Marsh Partner Charities
Under the theme of ‘People and Communities at Risk’, Marsh has established a multi-year partnership with six UK charities, which have been carefully selected to help us make a positive difference to the people, communities and business areas in which we work.
Marsh’s donation programme is administered centrally. The Company establishes a multi-year partnership with those charities, agreeing with each at the outset of our association a particular project or activity which our donation will fund, and then working with the charity to ensure its achievement. View the six current selected charities.
Marsh MAGIC (Matching and Giving for Involvement with Charities)
Marsh matches the fundraising and volunteer efforts of employees, for the communities and charities of their choice, up to a ceiling of £300 per colleague per year.
Marsh adds 10% to employees’ payroll donations to charities of their choice via Give As You Earn.
Our parent company, Marsh & McLennan Companies, publishes a Corporate Citizenship Report biannually. From volunteering to client work to diversity initiatives, the report features stories of the good work our colleagues have done around the world.
Please note that Marsh is not accepting new partnership requests at this time. We thank you for your interest in our firm. To learn more about Marsh’s philanthropic programmes please contact us or visit our parent company, Marsh & McLennan Companies, Corporate Citizenship section and “Our Partners”.
Marsh makes donations to a wide range of charitable and not-for-profit organisations. General policies and guidelines for such giving are established centrally, with country management applying them as appropriate locally.
Marsh staff are encouraged to engage with, and contribute to the well-being of their local communities. This support varies from country to country and is demonstrated in a variety of ways, including the provision of a day’s paid leave to assist on a community project and having a portion of an employee’s charitable fund-raising matched by the company.
In addition, Marsh colleagues in our Bristol, Witham and London offices spend one lunchtime per week visiting local school children and helping them with their literacy and numeracy skills. In London, we have had a relationship with the Halley School since 1997.

We recognise our responsibility to do business in a way that protects and improves the state of the environment for future generations. To learn more about our sustainability policies and programmes, please visit our parent company.
In addition to the above, all employees of Marsh & McLennan Companies are bound by our Code of Conduct, known as The Greater Good, which includes a section on “Building Trust with Communities”.

The company also applies a robust Diversity and Inclusion Policy in support of a key objective to attract, retain, develop and motivate the best people in our fields of endeavour, at all levels.
