At Parrot, we are passionate about the environment and our impact on it, and we know that you care too! So, we have crafted Parrot Safe Driver (PSD) as possibly the first Go Green motor insurance policy on earth!
Parrot prides itself on being a Green organization. We take a 3600 view of our environmental footprint and have proactively taken every possible step to reduce our environmental impact.
This means actions not just on part of Parrot (i.e., every Parrot employee) but also a joint effort with our underwriters, vendors, and most importantly you, our esteemed customers to live by our shared commitment to the environment. So when you buy a Parrot policy you are giving a thumbs up to going Green and actively participating in making the earth a better place!
So, join us and let the Parrot take wings!
In consultation with a lot of experts & NGOs, we have taken a host of initiatives towards reducing our environmental impact:
Conservation of paper:
a. We issue e-policies, e-receipts etc.
b. Insurance claims are registered digitally, no paper forms to fill, photo prints to submit.
Contribute towards lowering CO2 emissions:
a. We focus on improving driving behavior, i.e., reducing harsh acceleration, harsh braking etc. This itself helps reduce carbon emissions.
b. Parrot app shows the CO2 emission for each trip. This improves awareness about the emissions. Awareness leads to concrete action.
c. PSD can be purchased only online. This has significantly lower carbon footprint than the traditional insurance purchase methods.
d. All our processes like policy issuance, payment receipts, claim submission etc. are completely digital. This has a significantly lower carbon footprint as compared to a policy/payment receipt getting delivered by mail/courier or filing claim by visiting an insurance office/branch in person.
We engage with our esteemed customers. Parrot policyholders can buy carbon credits by redeeming the P-Rewards the policyholders earn end of every quarter. They can potentially become CO2 neutral with respect to the carbon footprint resulting directly from their own driving. Parrot is proud to work with Shell Nature-based solutions, which is part of the Shell group. They work extensively in the field of sustainable development and thereby generating certified carbon credits. Needless to mention, the entire redemption process itself is completely digital and therefore nearly carbon neutral.
Parrot chooses its suppliers/vendors basis their commitment to the environment and not just based on lowest bid.
Parrot is conscious of the carbon footprint from its own operation and strives to off-set the same by planting trees, using environmentally friendly things like LED lighting in its offices or using only energy-efficient electronic equipment.
Parrot encourages work from home (WFH) and even after easing of pandemic restrictions has retained WFH to manage the carbon footprint.
Parrot encourages environmentally conscious behavior among its employees during, and even out of, office. For e.g., Parrot offices do not use single-use plastic, single-use packaged water bottles etc. Parrot offices are paperless or use only recycled paper for their external essential paper needs. Travel is kept to a minimum and even offshore implementations are managed remotely. Senior management personnel have even replaced incandescent lighting in their homes with LED lights.
