DescriptionEcology’s mission is to build a greener society. We play our part by providing mortgages for properties and projects that have a positive environmental or social impact. These include self-builds, conversions, boat moorings, woodlands and energy-efficiency initiatives as well as supporting community-led housing. Our lending supports individuals, community organisations and small-scale developers with sustainable building projects. We’re owned by our members, and mortgages are funded through our range of ethical savings accounts. We’re a Living Wage employer, and have a policy that no basic salary should exceed eight times the lowest full grade available. Ethical Consumer magazine has rated our savings and mortgages as an ethical ‘Best Buy’ and have received a Good Egg award from Good with Money.ApproachEcology has been committed to building a more sustainable future for nearly 40 years by providing lending for properties and projects that have a positive environmental or social impact. Ecology’s pioneering range of C-Change mortgages incentivise energy-efficiency through mortgage pricing based on the property’s energy performance. Ecology is also a leading lender for community-led housing solutions which typically deliver affordable and comfortable energy-efficient homes as well as supporting community-owned and sustainable businesses.
