We live in a society where huge amounts of paper are used every day. As we all know, paper comes from trees, so the more we use it, the more trees and land are needed to produce them. More and more companies are getting aware of our paper dependency situation and they are thinking of ways so that our planet can become more sustainable, even with the simple practice of going paperless. One of the organizations that promote environmental awareness, Miss Earth is in full support with one of the companies that promotes practices that can be a positive impact to Mother Earth.
30 gorgeous Miss Earth candidates recently joined Connext Insurance Agency, an emerging and innovative insurance provider, and FPG Insurance, the major player in the general insurance industry and leader in motor insurance coverage, in pushing the envelope to move towards ‘paperless’ insurance policy during an event last October 23, 2018 at The Viridian in Greenhills, San Juan City.
The event was graced by the Air Group of Miss Earth candidates including Miss Earth Philippines bet Celeste Cortesi who is very positive for a back-to-back win. FPG Insurance Ortigas Branch, headed by Ms. Rowena Cuaresma, takes pride in having Connext Insurance Agency as its top producer and among those who find exciting ways to promote safety and insurance through various channels such as the Miss Earth pageant.
Meanwhile, Connext President and General Manager Jonathan Ramirez shared with the ladies and members of the press his vision of moving insurance towards not only to a more efficient business process but also an environment-friendly one.
“We would like to challenge the current process of insurance companies, including us, that depend heavily on actual manpower logistics and the excessive paper we print out. We saw Miss Earth, an institution that advocates environment conservation, as an ideal platform, and FPG Insurance as the perfect partner, to introduce our latest technology and business process to the market,” said Ramirez.
The event kicked off the partnership among Connext Insurance Agency, FPG Insurance, and Carousel Productions, the organizer of the 17-year long pageant, to promote the norm of insuring among the public and recognizing that peace of mind is something as valuable as time.
“We are very happy to be a part of Connext’s vision of changing the landscape of the general insurance industry. FPG Insurance will always be a staunch supporter of innovation and advocacies that contribute to better lives,” said Ramon Yap Dimacali, President and CEO of FPG Insurance Philippines.
