As a mutual, our ethos of care is at the heart of our company. It’s in our DNA and it has been since 1841. Because we believe that when we work together, our collective efforts have the power to make a difference. 

How we make a difference

From how and where we invest your money, to the way we serve our communities and run our business, we are proactively seeking opportunities to be a positive force for change in a number of key areas of sustainability.

Sustainable investing

When you invest with Wesleyan, you're investing in companies that seek to reduce harm, have a positive impact and drive positive change. Companies that can provide a positive return on your investment in more ways than one.

Community and citizenship

At Wesleyan, we’ve always recognised our responsibility to the communities around us. That’s why we created the Wesleyan Foundation, to provide financial support to the organisations that promote health, education and social development.

Since 2017, we've donated millions to countless causes across the UK.

Business impact

Looking after you and your world starts with us, and how we manage our business on your behalf.

That's why in 2019, we set out our goal to be operationally carbon neutral by the end of 2023. We are currently analysing the data to ensure we have successfully met our target. This will be confirmed in our 2023 annual report and accounts.

Driving change - a more inclusive Wesleyan

As well as our sustainability goals, we have also set targets to become a more diverse and inclusive company by having more women and BAME colleagues in our senior leadership grades (40% and 20% respectively by 2025).

We have action plans in place and have signed up to initiatives such as the 30% club to help meet these goals.
