Naturesave is a general insurance provider, based in England which uses the insurance industry as a vehicle for sustainable development and adheres to the 10 principles of one planet living[not in citation given] as outlined by BioRegional.
Naturesave was influenced and inspired by Anita Roddick, the founder of the Body Shop. The company and the charitable trust were set up by Lloyd’s ex-insurance broker Matthew Criddle, on the premise that probabilistic assessments of the future would become harder to establish, as global warming and climate change directly affect the insurance industry’s ability to meet climate related insurance losses.[not in citation given]
