We believe companies have a responsibility to look after the planet we live on. That’s why as an independent British company we’re delighted to power our Dorset eco-factory with 100% renewable electricity sourced from the UK, combined with power from our on-site solar panels - and why we chose Good Energy, who are as strongly committed to renewables as we are.

In May 2017 we powered the Hay Festival of
Literature and the Arts, in Ross on Wye.
At Good Energy we believe the key to success is collaboration and we’ve
continued to strengthen our partnerships with like-minded organisations.
In 2016 we were fortunate enough to visit cocoa farmers and chocolate makers in both Madagscar and Grenada. Our experiences of the people there brought home just how small and precious our planet is. We chose Good Energy primarily because of their commitment to renewable energy. We also saw the work they were doing at a local festival, encouraging children to think of renewable energy sources.

Over 60% of our executive board are women, including CEO and CFO.
I often reflect on how far clean energy has come since 1999 – the year I founded Good Energy. In those days it was possible to fit the entire UK renewables industry into a small room above a pub. In 2016, renewables provided almost 25% of the UK’s electricity needs; and April 2017 saw the first coal free day in Britain since the industrial revolution.
But there is no time to lose. In June 2017 Donald Trump took a huge step backwards by announcing he would pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord. Extreme weather events are fast becoming the norm. As the threat of climate change grows, the transition to renewables has never been more urgent.
I’m hugely grateful to all our customers, investors, generators, and partners for supporting us as we aim to fulfil our purpose. This report provides an update on our progress: we’re proud of what we’ve achieved, but we’re not satisfied – and never will be.
