Naturesave, the sustainable insurance experts
Insurance tends not to be the first thing you think about when discussing the climate crisis. However, no other industry has such a unique relationship with a warming climate, as insurance.
Today, the UK’s insurance industry finds itself in the position of a global leader in providing the underwriting services that enable the extraction of fossil fuels. It’s a simple transaction, any new oil well or gas field, needs insurance before it can seek the necessary finance to go ahead. When you combine this with the fact that the insurance industry is one of the world’s biggest investors in fossil fuels, then its clear that we won’t solve the climate crisis without changing insurance!
Here at Naturesave, we work hard to help create a more sustainable insurance industry. Working as a broker from our base in Totnes, we offer insurance services for homes, businesses, and charities, offering the most ethical insurers we can find and lobbying the industry for change. Established for over 30 years, we are top rated by Ethical Consumer magazine and have donated over £1 million to our charity, the Naturesave Trust.
Buy One Get One Tree – if you do take out insurance with us, we will plant you a tree!
So, if you want to chat about your insurance needs, call us on 01803 864390 or click https://www.naturesave.co.uk/
Solar Boom Inspires Company to Bloom
Local renewable energy company, Bloom Renewables, open their new office in Dartington, creating 7 new local jobs in just 6 months.
Owner, Mark Bloomfield, remarked, ‘I’ve worked in the renewables industry for over 20 years and observed solar PV technology becoming more and more efficient. With spiralling energy costs and more awareness of the urgent need for carbon reduction and resilient energy supplies, demand for our services is higher than ever. It’s fantastic to be in a position to employ local people who really care about the clean energy revolution’.
Mark and colleague Dan Bayley were part of the winning team who scooped the prestigious Ashden Award for their work on the Totnes Transitions Street project, which aimed to provide local households with equitable and affordable clean energy. The success of the project inspired Mark to set up Bloom Renewables, ‘I realised there’s no time to waste – every solar PV system is one step further to decarbonising our economy.’
Solar energy and battery storage isn’t without its critics – production is a carbon and resource-heavy process. However, as Mark explains, ‘On average, the energy used to produce panels is reclaimed in just 3 years and with the average solar panel life span being 25-30 years, solar PV is still one of the best ways in which people can help reduce their carbon emissions.’ As well as reducing carbon, the Energy Saving Trust estimates that a typical household can save between £195 and £480 per year, based on the current Energy Price Guarantee.
A family run business, Mark’s wife Kat heads up marketing and his two daughters, Cedar and Boann often pop to the office. Kat remarks, ‘We often joke that Cedar, who’s just 17 months old, is the CEO of our company, but it has a serious side too – we want to remember that it’s the next generations that have to tackle the mess we’ve created since the industrial revolution. Our girls constantly remind us of this responsibility.’
With the renewable energy industry growing apace, there are more opportunities than ever for people to secure well paid and meaningful roles in the transition to clean energy. Mark comments, ‘We’re always interested to hear from electricians, project managers and sales people who share our values and want to be part of a professional and friendly team’.
