Corporate responsibility

Good Energy is a different kind of energy company, powering the choice of a cleaner, greener future together. Guided by our principles and values, we have a track record of successfully challenging the way things are done, putting power back into the hands of families, communities and businesses across the country. We source all our electricity from certified renewables like solar power, wind power, hydroelectric power and biofuels. We always have and always will – no other UK energy supplier can promise that. Our gas is carbon neutral too: 6% comes from biomethane and we offset the rest through the Green Gas Certification programme. We aren’t only interested in reducing carbon emissions though. The projects we select deliver wider benefits in their local communities, including tackling local poverty and empowering local women.

We were named “best green electricity supplier” and one of the UK’s most ethical companies of the last 25 years by Ethical Consumer Magazine. We are the only UK energy supplier to have equal representation between women and men at Board level. Our Executive team comprises three women and five men. We are also proud to have been an accredited Living Wage employer since 2015.

We continue to prove that the “other way” is better. You can find out more about where and how we source our energy, how we look after our people and how we treat our customers at: goodenergy.co.uk.

As a mission-led business, we aspire to be as transparent as possible about our activities. Our 2017 Progress Report describes what we’ve been doing over the last year, and reflects on our progress towards achieving our purpose. Over the last year we’ve launched a tariff specifically for people who drive electric vehicles and we’ve started working with some amazing businesses like Neal’s Yard Remedies and Lick the Spoon. We’re pioneering local energy models through our pilot project Smart Fintry and our peer-to-peer trading platform “Selectricity” connects local business consumers with local renewable generators.
