Here is the Evergreen Insurance Q&A
Living Earth: Green Minds
Evergreen Insurance Services was founded in 2017 by David Gardiner as an opportunity to provide businesses and consumers with the insurance solutions they need, whilst also giving back to support our natural world. Living Earth sat down with David to find out more.
Where did the idea for Evergreen Insurance Services come from?
I have a lifelong passion for our natural world, the animals that we share our planet with and the many other species that make up our habitats and it saddens me to see the constant destruction and cruelty to animals and wildlife. I wanted to do something to help.
What’s your motivation?
At Evergreen we wanted to do things differently. We are an ethical insurance broker with a focus on customer satisfaction whilst helping our friends in the natural world.
Why did you choose to work with the Soil Association?
As passionate supporters of many natural, wildlife and conservation charities, we saw an opportunity to help. We forego part of our commission from the insurers yet still provide great insurance products with fantastic customer service. It’s a win, win!
How does it work?
Evergreen donates up to 25% of their earnings back to the Soil Association, helping to support our vital work. The donation increases every year the insurance is renewed to a maximum of 25%. Evergreen’s aim is to help with ongoing funding through the arrangement of insurance.
Yes! We won the Most Ethical Insurance Company Award 2020 from SME News and we were also named Most Ethical Insurance Provider at the Global Corporate Livewire Awards. We had to demonstrate extensive expertise and skills, dedication to customer service and client satisfaction and it’s a real honour to have our work recognised in this way.
What kind of insurance cover do you provide?
Everyone needs insurance whether it is for businesses or personal needs. From environmental consultancy, food, manufacturing, renewable energy, transportation through to personal homes, cars, holidays, travel, life and pets, Evergreen is here to help.
Why should someone choose you over another provider?
If you are looking for a more ethical approach to arranging your insurance and prefer the personal touch – good old customer service as it should be. No complicated phone systems just straight forward help with your enquiry with quality experienced team of staff.
