I would like to second Derek and John's opinion.
The companies that chose to do business with customers who are after
ecological alternatives are the ones you should support and seek out. In
the Netherlands and I suppose many other countries, banks and other
institutions who extend mortages or insurance are continually looking for
new markets. The nice thing for us is that some of these companies are
finding out about the growing ecological market as a new potentially low
risk market. In general people seeking out ecological alternatives are
caring and careful people and therefore generally low risk paying
customers. In the Netherlands we now have the case that these institutions
are now actively seeking us out to participate with us to tap this
potentially profitable market.
To avoid a blacklisting of SB it is very important not to promote SB as a
cheap alternative. We 'sell' SB as an alternative to main stream technology
for the same price but with high insulation and sustainability as a bonus,
ie you pay the same but get better quality.

I have read on multiple sources that most insurance companies are
canceling policies left and right. Explanations vary, but there is
agreement that the goal is to cut the number of policies, not to provide
consistent, logical or customer oriented service. If this is true, then
information and education is unlikely to change the policies of companies
that are blacklisting SB. John's suggestion (below) seems more promising.
