Corporate responsibility

We believe that business can be a force for good.

Since 1930, we've held a set of principles that defines who we are and how we operate every single day.

We call it the Markel Style, and at its core is the aspiration that any customer, associate, or shareholder who comes into contact with Markel Group should be better off for having done so. To us, this is the ultimate in sustainable business, and it's why we believe that good environmental, social, and governance principles have described and always will describe Markel Group well.

The Markel Style in action.

In addition to reinforcing our commitment to long-term success, the values in the Markel Style inspire our companies to work hard to benefit the communities in which they operate. A few such examples are shown below.

Our creed is honesty and fairness in all our dealings.

We are focused on sustainably growing the financial value of Markel Group with companies and investments that are balanced, diversified, and built for the long term.
