Good Energy wins award for office rainforest stunt

Chippenham firm Good Energy has won an award for installing a spectacular rainforest display inside its office to mark the launch of a new eco product.

Staff and visitors were stunned when set-designers transformed the building into a rainforest, on the day the firm unveiled its eco-friendly green gas product which supports projects to save rainforests abroad.

The spectacle was designed to help the firm’s 350 staff understand the project by bringing it directly to their doorstep.

Volunteers from the overseas rainforest projects were brought into the office to give talks about how the new product helps cut global emissions.

The unique approach to staff engagement was recognised by the Chartered institute of Public Relations which handed Good Energy a Gold Award for ‘Best Internal Communications Campaign’ at its South of England ceremony in Bristol (on Friday 25 November).

David Brooks, Managing Director at Good Energy said:

“It’s great to be recognised for the special moments we create here at Good Energy. We wanted to do something different and bring our green gas product to life for our people – because they are the ones who bring it to life for our customers. It was great fun creating a rainforest in our office so I’m delighted to be able to celebrate our achievements this way.”

Good Energy’s success did not stop there, as they also took home the Silver Award in the ‘Outstanding in-house public relations team’ category.

The wins come after a successful year for the renewable energy company. It has also launched a new online service called Selectricity where business customers can match their electricity consumption with renewable power generators of their choice.
