Naturesave were delighted to be awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Sustainable Development category in 2011. We are the only insurance company to have been awarded The Queen’s Award in the Sustainable Development category.
The citation provided by the Queens Award office reads as follows:
Naturesave Policies Ltd t/a Naturesave Insurance is an exemplar ethical insurance cover provider for individuals, companies and the voluntary sector throughout the UK, which has set a clear benchmark for others within the insurance industry. Sustainability and ethical business practices are at the core of the company’s commercial activities, with preferential treatment given to charity or not-for-profit organisations. Naturesave Insurance has taken an innovative approach to promoting sustainability through its wider operations, including thorough commitments to make all business journeys via public transport, and incentivising staff to avoid air travel for holidays. The company effectively engages with the wider sustainability agenda, delivering benefits within the wider community through the Naturesave Trust, a charitable trust funded through the company’s premiums, which gives grants to environmental, conservation and community renewable energy projects throughout the UK.
We would like to thank all our clients and supporters for the belief you have shown us over the years as we would not have been able to win this prestigious award without your support.
This award is recognition of your own belief in sustainability and our role in its application within the insurance industry.
