We’re confident in saying that our Standard Variable and Fixed tariffs are among the greenest energy tariffs in Britain. In fact, no other energy supplier has achieved all of the accreditations listed below, from some of the country’s most trusted consumer choice services.  

Uswitch Green Tariff Gold Standard

Britain’s leading utility switching service is making it easier to find genuinely green energy suppliers. Their Green Tariff accreditation launched in 2021 gives different grades for sustainability. We have received the highest one, Gold Standard, for two years running. 

Uswitch explains that “Gold Standard tariffs will provide 100% of renewable electricity from PPAs and 10% of green gas. These tariffs will also provide a meaningful contribution towards increasing and/or promoting renewable energy, for example by investing into future renewable generation, such as wind and solar and market innovations that help promote renewable uptake”.

“We know consumers are growing ever-more environmentally conscious, and our research shows that some energy firms go to great lengths to invest in the technology we need to clean up the grid, generate renewable electricity, or buy it from renewable generators.”

Friends of the Earth recommended green energy supplier

Good Energy has supported Friends of the Earth for well over a decade. Like Friends of the Earth, we’re working to stop the UK’s reliance on fossil fuels. Arguing for investment in lower cost, local renewable energy generation instead of expensive, imported fossil fuels is essential to tackling the climate crisis – and the cost-of-living crisis, too.  

Our dedication to buying 100% renewable electricity directly from British generators has been recognised as being genuinely green. That’s why we’re delighted to be recommended as a green energy supplier by Friends of the Earth.  

Ethical Consumer Best Buy

The Ethical Consumer Best Buy label makes it easy to find products that meet the highest ethical and environmental standards. Good Energy has been a Best Buy for energy for over 9 years. 

Before awarding a Best Buy label, Ethical Consumer’s researchers rate both the product and the company against more than 20 environmental, human rights and animal welfare criteria. Other best buy companies include names like Neal’s Yard Remedies and Triodos, putting Good Energy in good company.
