Naturesave was founded by former Lloyds insurance broker, Mathew Criddle, in 1993 when the environmental movement in business was in its infancy. Matthew created the business to act as a vehicle for sustainability within insurance industry
I realised that, although the insurance industry was not taking environmental issues seriously, it would be in the front line in dealing with the consequences of environmental disasters. At the same time, I realised that the insurance industry possesses an almost unparalleled potential to reduce the impact of climate change by actively promoting the production and consumption of sustainable alternatives to energy derived from fossil fuels. I also wanted to develop a sustainable business model that reflected the growing demand by individuals and organisations for greener and more ethical insurance
We’re delighted to have reached this milestone, especially during such a challenging year for businesses. There has never been a more critical time for the work of the Naturesave Trust and there are many projects that we would like to support that can make a real difference to people and the planet. I would like to thank all our loyal customers and stakeholders for helping Naturesave to achieve this.
