We talk to the first building society to gain the fair tax mark, Ecology Building Society, about why they chose to get the Fair Tax Mark
Why did you apply for the Fair Tax Mark?
While tax remains a controversial area for many, Ecology Building Society are proud to be the first building society awarded the Fair Tax Mark, which sets a benchmark for responsible tax behaviour.
What are the benefits of it for your business?
We’re delighted to be able to offer the first Fair Tax Mark accredited range of personal savings accounts which now means that ethically minded consumers can place their savings with an organisation that pursues responsible tax behaviour.
What is your view of tax and social responsibility
We believe that that the fair payment of of tax is an important part of our contribution to society and helps reduce inequalities which have an environmental cost. This plays a vital role in helping to delivery our mission to build a greener society.
