The Green Insurance Company (GIC) this week celebrated writing its 25,000th policy since it was founded 19 months ago.
The eco-conscious car insurance intermediary said it reached the milestone ahead of schedule following ‘a very successful year’s trading’.
The company started as a team of three, but has now expanded to employ 60 and is looking to recruit more in the near future.
Environmental credentials have been key to the company’s success.
GIC pledges to offset 100% of the carbon emissions produced by customers’ cars.
Over 100,000 trees have been planted by the company across Scotland and the North of England to enable it to meet this promise.
In addition, 5% of the company’s annual profits are given away to environmental and ethical causes, whilst employees are encouraged to get involved with local projects using three fully paid ‘community days’ every year.
Andrew McMillan, managing director, said: “Customers have told us they like our environmental ethics.”
He added: “Our expansion will continue this year as we launch more exciting products, further develop our popular website and invest in our people.”
