Sustainability at the Society

Whether it’s installing solar panels at our Head office, retrofitting, providing green mortgages for our members, or educating children in local schools on sustainability, the Society has a climate strategy leading the way in the financial industry.

The Society’s climate strategy came into to sharp focus in 2019 when CEO Colin Fyfe and Operational Risk and Climate Manager Clare White decided to introduce an Environmental Committee, with the desire of becoming a local market leading business for engaging with customers and its local communities on environmental issues. Four years on Finance Frontiers share our story with the world in a thought-provoking series of videos exploring how the finance sector is innovating to tackle global issues.

Finance Frontiers were invited to visit Hinckley and Rugby’s HQ to learn about the positive changes the Society has made. They also join our Green Team at one of the local schools we have visited, where we’re teaching children about how homes can be retrofitted to mitigate climate change, and to plant a tree in the school grounds to add to the local green canopy.

Make your property greener with the Society

Residential properties make up 23% of carbon emissions in the UK and we’re committed to supporting our members in reducing home energy consumption by offering cost-friendly funding solutions to existing borrowers seeking to improve their EPC rating.

One way to start is through green mortgages, which are designed to help people make more sustainable choices when buying or remortgaging their home. They can be used to finance energy-efficient improvements to a home, such as double glazing or insulation.
