NASSAU, 13 January 2022 – In 2022, the annual desktop calendar produced by leading general insurance agency NUA Insurance Agents & Brokers broke with tradition, replacing its conventional images of native flora and fauna with custom vignettes promoting sustainability and environmental stewardship.
The publication, titled ‘A Sustainable Future’, was designed as an educational tool and offers practical monthly tips for living sustainably, including advice to reduce plastics, explore electric vehicles, and adopt a “plant-forward” diet that moderates meat consumption and reduces the overall greenhouse gas effects of animal agriculture.
NUA Managing Director, Stanford Charlton, said the publication demonstrates NUA’s commitment to the model of sustainability adopted in 2020 by its parent company, Bahamas First Holdings, to drive positive change toward alternative energy, “greener” vendor relationships and other corporate behaviour modifications that protect the environment.
“Our Group joined the conversation on climate change because we realised our place in a climate vulnerable country, but we also realised the important role that the insurance sector plays in identifying risk and building resilience. NUA is committed to ensuring that sustainability runs through everything we do, and we believe that our annual calendar can help educate the public on small changes they can make to build resilience in their homes and communities. It is just one of many ways that our Group is compounding our legacy of philanthropy and volunteerism to benefit our country.”
Group Marketing Manager and creative director for the publication, Melanie Hutcheson, said the project tells a story of small but impactful steps toward sustainability. “Climate change is undoubtedly an expansive topic and one that the average citizen thinks is bigger than them. Our goal was to use the calendar’s monthly format to present a series of “how-to” moments that illustrate simple habits people can undertake to live more sustainable lifestyles.”
Made of recycled and recyclable paper, ‘A Sustainable Future’ calendar is available free of charge from any NUA location in The Bahamas and features employees of NUA and its affiliates.
