Committed to Helping
Social responsibility is a fundamental element of our corporate philosophy. We are not only committed to being leaders in the international market we’ve served for 20 years, but to our community as well. To build a solid foundation for a successful company, it’s essential to give back to the community – hopeful of establishing a thriving environment for others.
At IMG, providing support to charitable organizations that help benefit children, health care and education is an area of great importance and focus. In order for these organizations to fulfill their missions, they need the finances to operate. To help meet this need, IMG formed The IMG Foundation. This foundation raises and distributes funds to organizations that assist Indiana residents and international organizations that provide services to the international community. Through the generosity of many, the Foundation has made major donations to over 45 organizations.
In addition to the work of the Foundation, IMG has dedicated a significant amount of time and resources into ensuring our actions and services have minimal impact on the environment. In 2009, after the successful implementation of an Environmental Management System, IMG achieved ISO 14001:2004 certification. IMG is one of the first known in our industry to receive this type of certification.
As part of the standard, IMG must undergo a series of annual internal audits, in addition to an annual third party surveillance audit, to ensure ongoing conformance and to confirm our employees are educated and trained. An independent auditor recently verified that we successfully passed our annual review.
Achieving and maintaining this certification is a step in the right direction toward preserving the environment and providing a cleaner, safer and healthier work atmosphere for the staff of IMG. Additionally, we have a responsibility to our clients to provide them with an assortment of products backed by the highest international standard of service, and a commitment to be aware of our environment. This certification is an excellent model to guide us in achieving those goals.
Our commitment has also extended to our product portfolio with the development of the short-term travel plan, Patriot Green Travel Medical InsuranceSM. As we strive to meet and exceed the needs of individuals and groups in all segments of the market, we created an international travel medical plan that addresses the goals of travelers who are serious about sustainable and responsible tourism. This unique plan is one of many in our vast portfolio and offers several eco-friendly benefits.
