Corporate responsibility

Our forever and right now approach informs our day-to-day actions and our long-term view for the development, sustainability, and governance of Markel as one of the world's great companies.

From governance, to our people, to our communities, and our environment, we take the role of corporate citizen seriously.

Corporate responsibility is the Markel Style

At Markel, our belief in forever means an enduring commitment to help our customers, colleagues, and shareholders win in the longest term. Of necessity, this also means sustainable service to our communities and the environment. Across our three engines of insurance, investments, and ventures, our dedication to corporate responsibility consistently reflects the guidance of our corporate compass, the Markel Style.
