Force for Good

In 2015, Assurity became the world’s largest insurance company to be named a certified B Corporation. To qualify, a firm must have an explicit social or environmental mission, and a responsibility to take into account the interests of workers, the community and the environment, as well as its policyholders. We believe it’s our responsibility to set a course for a more mindful way of doing business.

Community Involvement

At Assurity, we put our mission of "helping people through difficult times" into practice every day, not only by serving our customers, but also through our meaningful commitment to strengthening our community. Our associates devote their time to many company-sponsored and supported volunteer activities: blood drives, Habitat for Humanity, collections for the Food Bank, holiday "giving tree," Junior Achievement and Special Olympics, among many others.

Sustainability

We’ve been around for well over a century, and we plan on being around for at least a century more. Taking the long view means a commitment to sustainability and protecting the environment. From the energy- and water-conserving features to the living roofs, Assurity Center was built with the utmost attention to minimizing environmental impact in its construction and operation. This innovative and comprehensive approach made it one of the first privately owned major office buildings in Nebraska to receive LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

Some of the prominent features of the building include:

  • Extensive use of windows with exterior sunshading and interior lightshelves that reduce reliance on artificial lighting.
  • High-performance windows and automated internal shades reduce heat gain.
  • Emphasis on use of recycled-content and regionally available materials, including limestone from within 500 miles of Lincoln.
  • Energy-efficient heating, cooling and electrical systems, including an innovative ice bank storage system which uses off-peak energy to provide air conditioning more efficiently and at lower cost.
  • Under-floor HVAC distribution which allows associates to directly control the air flow within their work spaces.
  • Low-flow, water-conserving plumbing for 33 percent water use savings over a typical office building.
  • Green (living) roofs to reduce heating and cooling costs and provide stormwater benefits.
  • An innovative approach to stormwater management using underground cisterns to store runoff for grounds irrigation.
  • Pervious paving surfaces and bioswales to reduce runoff and allow absorption of rainwater into the subsoil.
  • Use of drought-tolerant native and naturalized plantings to minimize irrigation, reduce the impact of maintenance on the environment and create habitat within the city.
  • Close proximity to a major public transit line and the convergence point of Lincoln's trails system, allowing convenient access to alternative modes of transportation.
