Stop Funding Hate

stop funding hate

We’re proud to support the Stop Funding Hate campaign, which aims to mobilise consumer power to bring about a fairer and more inclusive media.

Stop Funding Hate seeks to make media hate unprofitable by persuading companies to switch their advertising away from publications that demonise minority groups – and towards those which report accurately and fairly.

Stop Funding Hate opposes all forms of discrimination and hate speech – but the campaign has a particular focus on the three UK newspapers that have been called out by the United Nations over their coverage: The Sun, Daily Mail and Daily Express.

As a company we are committed to advertising ethically. We are the first UK insurance provider to make a public commitment not to advertise in the Sun, Daily Mail or Daily Express.

Founder and director of Stop Funding Hate Richard Wilson said:

“We are delighted that ETA Insurance is committed to advertising ethically, and is supporting the Stop Funding Hate campaign.

ETA is the first UK insurance company to make this commitment, which confirms their status as a sector leader in business ethics and corporate social responsibility.

At a time when thousands of consumers are calling on the companies they shop with to ensure that their marketing lives up to their values, ETA have shown that their ethical commitments are more than just rhetoric.

This announcement will doubtless come as welcome news both to ETA customers, and to everyone up and down the UK who wants to see a fairer and more accurate media.”

The ethical choice

The ETA was established in 1990 as an ethical provider of green, reliable travel services. Over 30 years on, we continue to offer cycle insurance , breakdown cover and mobility scooter insurance while putting concern for the environment at the heart of all we do.

The Good Shopping Guide judges us to be the UK’s most ethical provider. According to The Good Shopping Guide: “There are some insurers who can be regarded as ‘ethical specialists’….The ETA aims to bring about positive changes in Britain’s travel habits by raising awareness about the impact of excessive car use. It provides bicycle insurance as well as breakdown cover for cars and mobility scooters”

    Oh dear. This organisation believes that anybody who voices an alternative view is spouting “hate”, and needs to be shut down.

    ETA are making a serious error by aligning themselves with this extreme organisation.

    Good stuff, but I wasn’t actually aware that ETA advertised in any newspaper.
