SiriusPoint will be the lead sponsor of Earth Hour 2021 in Bermuda.

Earth Hour is one of the world’s largest grassroots environmentalist movements, and in 2021 hopes to inspire individuals, businesses, and organizations in over 180 countries and territories to renew their commitment to the planet. The Bermuda event is being organised by Greenrock, an island sustainability charity.

SiriusPoint, which was recently formed after the merger of Third Point Reinsurance and Sirius International Insurance Group, is sponsoring the Bermuda part of a global campaign, after Third Point Reinsurance served as lead sponsor for Earth Hour in 2020.

The sponsorship money will be used to help make Bermuda more sustainable and fund the countdown to 2021 Earth Hour campaign, which is being held on Saturday March 27.

Eugene Dean, Greenrock’s chairman, said the organisation has aggressive goals in 2021, noting that SiriusPoint’s contribution “will go a long way toward supporting our efforts to help make Bermuda more sustainable.”

“The level of [SiriusPoint’s] sponsorship over the past two years is a clear indication of the confidence they have in the work we are doing, and for that we are both humbled and inspired to do more,” added Dean. 

Mark Nash, senior vice president of enterprise risk management and head of the charitable donations committee at SiriusPoint, said: “At SiriusPoint, we are committed to finding better ways to do things, to collaborating and empowering individuals, and to positively impacting the communities and environments we work in. Greenrock is doing incredible work focusing the Island's community on the challenges we face together, and we are proud that our values align with their mission.”
