Ethical car insurance is growing in popularity, and can now be obtained from a number of companies. Co-operative Insurance though is the UK’s only insurance company with an Ethical Engagement Policy.
Co-operative Insurance uses its position as a major investor, to engage companies on a commercial level. In this way, it challenges major businesses from the inside, to improve their performance in relation to issues such as climate change and human rights - in a way that other organisations cannot.
Its current ethical policy covers everything from human rights and armaments through to trade & labour rights, social inclusion, genetic modification, environmental sustainability, climate change and animal welfare.
The Co-operative’s car insurance is also ethical for another reason. The co-operative will offset 20% of your car’s carbon emissions.
But there are other reasons to take out the co-ops ethical car insurance. Their car insurance is, more often than not, much cheaper than other market leaders. 89% of More Than customers, 73% of Norwich Union customers and 63% of LV customers all received a cheaper quote from Co-operative car insurance.
And it’s not just ethical and cheap either – you’ll get a host of other great features when you take out car insurance with The Co-operative Insurance. Other great features of their car insurance policy include:
• Europe-wide breakdown cover for just £52 per year
• A possible 70% No Claim Discount (which can also be earned by named drivers)
• A courtesy car as standard
• 30 days EU cover, at not extra cost, for those trips abroad
