There was jubilation in the Good Energy office this week as we found out we’re the best green electricity supplier, according to a new report from Ethical Consumer.
We topped their survey of green electricity tariffs and achieved their highest score for our dual fuel gas tariff.
Rob Harrison co-editor of Ethical Consumer said: "Good Energy has consistently come out top in every green energy product guide that Ethical Consumer has ever published. This is because of Good Energy's pioneering approach to renewable energy and their whole company ethos which is based around tackling climate change, the biggest environmental challenge of our age."
Ethical Consumer gives each tariff an “ethiscore” out of 20, rating companies on their social, ethical and political record, their company ethos and the sustainability of their products. Good Energy was the only company to score 15.5 for green electricity and it was joint highest for gas with 15. “For green electricity tariffs, Good Energy comes out best in this report,” the magazine stated.
Earlier this year we also won the Which? Switch customer satisfaction survey and were the only company to be awarded the top five-star rating for energy efficiency advice, something we’re particularly proud of.
Juliet Davenport OBE, CEO and Founder of Good Energy, said: “Ethical Consumer‘s comprehensive reports hold businesses accountable for their ethical and environmental record and offer positive choices for consumers who care about responsible business. We are delighted their report has found Good Energy offers the best green electricity tariff on the market.
“We strongly believe that business can be a force for good, and our mission is to make an impact on climate change by making it easy for people to switch to green electricity.”
Ethical Consumer’s report urges people to switch to greener energy providers, saying that the big six energy companies are not doing enough to prevent serious climate change. Good Energy was founded to help tackle climate change and making sure our electricity comes from renewable sources is the cornerstone of our business, so to top Ethical Consumer’s best buy for green electricity is great affirmation that we are achieving the high standards we hold ourselves to.
