Review Ecology Building Society's Savings now

I've been an investor with the Ecology Building Society for longer than I can remember - probably 20 years by now.

They've always been my go-to savings provider. Yes, the interest rates may not be the highest, but it's a tiny price to pay for knowing that your money is 100% ethically invested - no ifs, no buts.

They're great to deal with, too. You always get straight through to a person (not like some providers who subject long-suffering customers to endless queues with stupid music - you know who you are!) and they're infallibly efficient and friendly.

What's not to like?

Ethical, efficient, personal

I feel I'm dealing with real people at EBS, whereas other banks seem to be staffed by machines. And they are fruly ethical. That matters.

Nobody I'd rather bank with

Ecology are great and continue to improve their services. I only wish I could have a current account with them too. I've been a customer for 11 years now and have had no issues at all - just a great ethical savings option.

Ecology Simply Do what they set out to.... Ecological environmentally sound mortgages. And Savings.
No waste of money on over glossy ads, over inflating claims of size.
Ecology is honest. When they write inform me of product changes, it's real, straightforward and legible.
Ecology employ genuine people who speak to me like a real intelligent person. There's no double speak. Just sincere friendly communication.
I trust ecology integrity.

Ethical Savings

Good to have an ethical savings account. Also at a higher savings rate than most (less ethical) savings accounts. Great to take part in an ethical organisation

Efficient Ethical Building Society

Ecology Building Society keeps me up to date abut their savings' products. I appreciate their snapshots of what properties they have loaned money for. I can always telephone their office and speak to a real person.

Ethical, professional, reliable

Ethics excellent, communication excellent, and tailored to what we need, eg my daughter can’t spend time on a screen so gets all her communications by post.

After spending quite a bit of time reviewing available ethical savings accounts, the Ecology Building Society regular saver account came out with one of the best rates whilst meeting all the ethical criteria i was concerned about. It also seemed a good longer term option as it wasn't just an introductory rate that would drop to near-zero after 12 months like certain competitor's offerings!
