Ecotricity’s mission is to change where Britain’s energy comes from – to bring about sustainability by investing in renewables. Conventional electricity is responsible for 30% of Britain’s carbon emissions – it’s our biggest single source as a nation – and therefore the biggest single thing we can change.
By using their customers’ energy bills to fund the building of new sources of Green Energy, all profits go into their mission for a Green Britain. With no shareholders to answer to, Ecotricity pursue outcomes rather than profit, with the support of their customers.
If we are to solve the issue of rising energy bills in the long term, we need to end our unsustainable dependence on imported fossil fuel and return to a state of energy independence by investing in renewables.
