What does NFU Mutual do?

NFU Mutual is a UK insurance company, which is owned by its policyholder members. NFU are the initials of the National Farmers’ Union, and the company was originally founded by seven farmers in Warwickshire in 1910.

In which areas does NFU Mutual perform well?

NFU Mutual performs well for our criteria relating to the environment and emissions. NFU Mutual has published an Annual Stewardship Code which includes a number of targets and evidence of progress, as well as a Net Zero by 2050 goal and emissions disclosures.

The above benchmark score that NFU Mutual is awarded on The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Insurance Ratings Table is the result of an evaluation of multiple ethical criteria. Find out more about how we rate.

What can NFU Mutual do to improve its score?

NFU Mutual was only awarded a middle rating for our criteria concerning its Responsible Investment Policy, as there are no investment revenue exclusions listed.

If it applies for Ethical Accreditation, The Good Shopping Guide would be able to offer some guidance on this to enable NFU Mutual to improve its score. If successful in its application, NFU Mutual would join the certified ethical brands leading the way in progressive and sustainable practices and be permitted to display The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Mark in its communications.
