Is Green Insurance Group an ethical insurance brand?
Unfortunately due to its low score on the Ethical Insurance Ratings Table, Green Insurance Group is classed as an unethical insurance brand. It is owned by Global Risk Partners Ltd/Searchlight Capital Partners L.P.
Despite not meeting our minimum Ethical Benchmark, we still encourage Green Insurance Group to apply for Ethical Accreditation. This would allow The Good Shopping Guide the opportunity to provide it with a detailed assessment and some tips on how to improve its ethical score. As a result, Green Insurance Group could see its position rise on our table.

What does Green Insurance Group receive a top rating for?
Green Insurance Group is awarded a top score for Environmental Destruction, Political Donations and Irresponsible Lending due to its lack of negative records in these categories. Searchlight Capital Partners L.P. which is one of Green Insurance Group’s parent brands has made some Political Donations in the past, but as they were under The Good Shopping Guide’s threshold, it is still awarded a top score.
In which categories do Green Insurance Group receive a bottom score?
Unfortunately, Green Insurance Group has a bottom score in The Good Shopping Guide’s Environmental Report and Carbon Disclosure categories. Neither Green Insurance Group nor its parent company Global Risk Partners has any sustainability information on their websites, which is why it is given a bottom score.
What can Green Insurance Group do to improve its score?
The below-benchmark score that Green Insurance Group receives in The Good Shopping Guide is the result of a calculation of multiple ethical criteria. We encourage Green Insurance Group to work on its bottom ratings for its Environmental Report and Climate Disclosure so that it can see its score rise and potentially become one of the leading insurance providers within The Good Shopping Guide. Despite its below-benchmark rating, Green Insurance Group can still apply for Ethical Accreditation and we hope that in the future, we can award it with our Ethical Mark.
