Since SHOP became a C.I.C we have been trying to implement our ethos into each area of the company, including the suppliers of our services. Below is a list of our suppliers, all of whom are ethically led.
Phone and Internet
SHOP uses The Phone Co-op, who are run by people united by shared values, shared ownership and democratically made decisions. They are run and owned by their members.
SHOP uses Ecotricity, they use customers’ energy bills to fund the building of new sources of green energy. They like to refer to this as turning ‘Bills into Mills’ – energy bills into windmills. They are a not-for-dividend company – all of their profits go into their mission.
Banking and Insurance
SHOP uses The Co-operative who believe that, in the years to come, the only truly successful businesses will be those that achieve a sustainable balance between their own interests, and those of society and the natural world. They are one of only two banks in the U.K that are ethically led and don’t provide banking services to industries such as arms dealers or laborotories where animals are tested.
SHOP’s landlord is Bristol City Council who are a social landlord, meaning they value people over profit, unlike most private landlords.
