Keep Britain Tidy, one of the UK’s leading environmental charities, has selected Cushon – provider of the world’s first net zero now pension – as its workplace pension provider. This further affirms the company’s ethos of focusing on sustainability and protecting our environment.
Cushon’s partnership with Keep Britain Tidy is another illustration of our reputation as the UK’s leading sustainability driven fintech pension provider, driving forward ethical investment options, partnering with leading organisations and supporting employee engagement in both retirement savings and climate issues.
Passion is the foundation of everything Keep Britain Tidy does and that extends to the benefits and values Keep Britain Tidy provides and lives by as an employer. As an accredited Living Wage Employer and a signatory of the Show the Salary initiative, Keep Britain Tidy are proud to promote flexibility, personal development and a work-life balance for all staff. Providing a sustainable pension continues the extension of values influencing business decisions and employee benefits.
Through the Cushon app, Keep Britain Tidy employees will receive notifications when contributions are paid into their pension. They can easily change their contributions and transfer other pension pots in. Additionally, employees have access to Cushon’s workplace ISAs so they have the opportunity to save for other life events, not just retirement. These can be managed together with their pensions all in the same app.
Employees can also benefit from Cushon’s Shareholding Voting feature and have a say on key environmental, social and governance (ESG) resolutions taking place at the companies in which their money is invested, aligning their finances with their values.
Ben Pollard, CEO and Founder of Cushon said: “I’m really excited for Keep Britain Tidy a company committed to the environment, to be partnering with us as their workplace pension provider. Pensions can be a force for good and employees can save for the retirement they deserve while helping tackle climate change. It’s a great reason for employees to feel more engaged. Keep Britain Tidy is a company that recognises this and it’s great to have them on board.”
Allison Ogden-Newton, CEO of Keep Britain Tidy said: “As an environmental charity it was a natural step for us to keep our employee benefits in line with our company and employees’ beliefs. Our employees can now save for retirement on a platform they are excited to engage with, that cares for the planet as they do, and that aligns with their core values - all without compromise on returns. As an employer, I’m proud to offer that to Keep Britain Tidy employees.”
