The ETA has been voted the number one ethical insurance company in Britain by the Good Shopping Guide for two years running.
Beating household-name insurance companies such as Admiral, AXA, Churchill and Halifax, the ETA earned an ethical company index score of 93. The ETA specialises in breakdown cover, cycle insurance and travel insurance for the environmentally concerned customer.
The Good Shopping Guide
The Good Shopping Guide each year examines the companies behind the brands – both big and small. In some cases apparently ethical insurance brands score much lower than you might expect because the holding company is involved in less ethical practices.
According to the Good Shopping Guide: “Our till receipts can also be like voting slips – they can be used constructively by turning the notion of “money is power” on its head. This is something that the big corporations will have to notice tomorrow, even if they seem to be unaware of it today. If you care about global warming, pollution, animal testing, factory farming, the arms trade and the exploitation of people, you are certainly not alone. More people are taking an interest in the origins of their purchases, and where there money goes. What companies is your money supporting and how ethically responsible are these companies, are just a few questions now frequently being asked.”
“People are realising that they don’t have to join a campaign or become a political activist to make their voices heard: speaking out can also be as easy as making good choices about where you shop and what you buy.”
ETA breakdown cover
As well as being 100% carbon neutral, breakdown cover from the ETA offers an unparallelled level of service.
We handpick only the best local mechanics and garages to send out if you break down. We believe this way of working is efficient, environmentally friendly and helps supports local communities and economies, too.
On top of this, we offset the carbon emissions of the recovery trucks that go out to assist you, reducing the impact your breakdown has on our environment. Every breakdown policy you buy helps fund the work of our charity, the ETA Trust, which we set up in 1994 to campaign for a safer, cleaner transport future.
