NatWest: Best Mortgage Provider UK 2021


As one of the UK’s largest mortgage providers, NatWest has always been a popular destination for home buyers. The bank also has its finger of the pulse of public opinion, and has committed to becoming climate positive by 2025. Part of that initiative includes the bank’s Green Mortgage scheme. The company offers lower rates to those looking for a more eco-friendly, energy-efficient home. UK homes account for 15 percent of the country’s total climate emissions. Lower rates are offered to those buying properties with an energy certificate performance (EPC) of A or B. The project is in response to research which shows that 70 percent of its customers are concerned about climate change but are unsure how to react. Green Mortgages are part of NatWest’s promise to have a positive impact on the environment. The scheme is one of a number of ideas aiming to encourage greener choices. The scheme offers a reduction on a two year or five year fixed rate mortgage. The bank is a principal sponsor of COP26, taking place in Glasgow in November 2021, an illustration of its determination to be a leading voice in climate change, recognising the need for collaboration and co-operation between government, business and society in general. The company sees its role as providing support for those seeking a transition to a low carbon economy. The judging panel, for the second consecutive year, recognises NatWest’s commitment to the industry, and in 2021 is pleased to present the award, Best Mortgage Provider UK.
