We now look forward to sharing our Climate Positive Plan and to helping create a collective, resounding call for change. We are not claiming to be perfect, neither are we judging others, however we are totally committed to acting as a regenerative business with environmental protection as one of our core objectives
Having declared a climate emergency what steps are we now taking?
We will also adapt the Naturesave Trust’s program of advising SME’s on sustainability, to incorporate the concept of planning for Net Zero emissions and acknowledge the limitations of carbon offsetting.
We now plant a tree for every insurance policy we issue – this planting is part of a regenerative project with our partners, Trees For Life.
We will work with those in finance, pensions and investments to highlight the positive impact consumers can make in switching providers and lobbying their current providers to offer more sustainable financial products.
We will support and promote the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill, a cross party private members bill that, if passed into law, would transform the UK’s approach to tackling the climate and biodiversity crisis.
