Purpose and impact

We started Open with a belief that business should be a force for good. So we’re holding ourselves accountable to make a positive impact for our customers, team, community and the planet.


Being a force for good and what it means to us at Open

A detailed look at our progress towards becoming a force for good

The Open Team

Insurance for good

We’re proud to be Australasia’s first B-Corp Certified insurance company. B Corp companies meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

Becoming B Corp Certified was an important way to ensure that we measure and keep ourselves honest about our impact in the world. We re-certify every three years, and we continually focus our attention on making the changes that matter.

How we create a positive impact at Open

1. Our operations

We aim for sustainability in our operations and live the B-Corp values in our decision-making. This includes the partners and suppliers we work with and assets we invest in.

2. Empowering customers

Customers choosing to insure with us have direct positive impact through insurance products and options we offer them.

3. Community support

Giving back to the community and donating to environmental and social causes are a core part of our impact strategy, allowing us to make a difference beyond insurance.

Insurance products with impact

We’ve built insurance products that empower customers to make a difference.

Pay As You Drive car insurance

We reward comprehensive car insurance customers who drive less with lower premiums.

Environmental improvements

We support customers in making environmental improvements to their homes if they have home insurance and their homes need to be rebuilt as part of a claim.

Kanga Cover donations

In Australia, Huddle insurance’s Kanga Cover waives the excess on a driver’s first animal collision claim within a 12 month period. Every time a comprehensive car insurance customer adds this option to their policy, we donate $4 to the Australian Wildlife Conservancy.

Complimentary carbon offsetting

We give Huddle customers the option to help offset their carbon footprint when they buy a new policy – at no cost to them! We partner with Greenfleet who address deforestation and protect critical habitats by planting legally protected, biodiverse native trees in New Zealand and Australia.

Our Impact Partner for 2023: the Karrkad Kanjdji Trust

Our 1% for the Planet donation for 2022/23 is our largest ever - $100,400 AUD. We’re partnering with the Karrkad Kanjdji Trust, who work with Indigenous landowners in one of Australia's most culturally rich and biodiverse regions, Arnhem Land.

We donated 1% of our revenue to causes that matter — our $82,156 donation for FY2022

While we partnered with 1% for the planet, each year we donated at least 1% of our revenue to organisations tackling environmental challenges.

In FY2022, we donated to Fairtrade Australia and New Zealand, Australian Youth Climate Coalition, Greenfleet and the Australian Wildlife Conservancy.

Adopting a plot on Ben Lomond Track

We partner with Whakatipu Wilding Conifer Control Group, based in Queenstown, New Zealand, who protect native ecosystems through removal of invasive species.

Open has adopted a plot that our team regularly maintains to support regeneration of the native forest.

Beach clean-ups and Take 3 for the Sea

With plastic pollution being one of the biggest threats to oceans, marine life and the broader environment, the simple act of walking down the beach and collecting rubbish can make a big difference.

Our team regularly engage with beach clean-ups, including the Take 3 for the Sea events, which encourages everyone to take 3 pieces of rubbish when they’re out and about.
