If you are looking for home insurance - whether it be contents insurance or buildings insurance - that's ethical then why not get a quote from the co-op?

Co-operative insurance is the UK’s only insurance company with an Ethical Engagement Policy reflecting the views of its customers and guiding its investments.

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.
