Welcome to Saffron Building Society’s Green Hub

In association with the launch of our new Green products; our Enviro Saver and Retro Fit Mortgage, we have created an eco-focused space to help us all become a little more environmentally conscious.

Our vision is that as a society and throughout our communities, we can all take small steps to reduce our carbon footprint and reach a greener future for everyone. The Hub is designed to provide broad but detailed information covering the diverse ways that we can make eco-friendly changes to our lives, from utilising our online resources to help reduce emissions, to getting the whole family involved in challenges and activities that create environmentally friendly households!

We are believers in the power of community and we are confident in our collective ability to make a difference. So, with the help of our Green Hub, we hope you feel inspired to take those first few steps to a greener future, today.

Saffron Building Society is dedicated to creating a more eco-friendly approach for both current and future members. In this section you will find information concerning all of our Green Products, and the ways in which we can work together to create a greener Society here at Saffron

Going Green with Saffron

Making eco-friendly improvements to your home is an essential and rewarding way to “go green”. In this section, we’ve put together everything you need to know about green home improvements, so that you can make the right changes for you and your home.

All the environmental advice that surrounds us can sometimes feel overwhelming! Our Hints and Tips section is updated regularly to provide clear, useful information on making eco-friendly lifestyle changes.

Helpful Hints & Tips

When it comes to being eco-friendly, age is but a number! Whether you are seven or seventy, our Eco Corner provides exciting activities and challenges to involve the whole family in going green.

Eco Corner

In line with Saffron Building Society’s Green vision we asked you, the public, which environmental charity you would like our Enviro Saver to support.

After an overwhelming response, The Conservation Volunteers were chosen to receive a lump sum donation, due to be paid in June 2021.

For over 60 years, the Conservation Volunteers have been connecting people to the green spaces that form a vital part of any healthy, happy community. We bring people together to create, improve and care for green spaces. From urban to rural, local parks and community gardens to Local Nature Reserves and Sites of Special Scientific Interest; from school grounds and hospital grounds to waterways, wetlands and woodlands.

Ours is an incredibly inclusive and diverse charity, working with people of all ages, our teams of dedicated, passionate staff and volunteers work with communities across England, Northern Ireland and Scotland and through our Community Network we support over 1,300 local community groups across the UK.
