National Trust to continue partnership with Good Energy
The National Trust has announced it will be continuing its partnership with green electricity supplier Good Energy for a further two years.
The two organisations will work together to raise awareness of climate change, inspiring the Trust’s four million members to do something simple to tackle the issue by switching to Good Energy’s 100% renewable electricity.
Any supporters who are inspired to switch to Good Energy’s 100% renewable electricity or dual fuel tariffs will receive a National Trust gift card worth up to £40 when quoting ‘National Trust’.
For every year they remain a customer, Good Energy will also donate the same sum to the National Trust to help support them in their conservation work.
“As the world’s politicians meet in Paris to thrash out an agreement to limit climate change, we think that normal people – like Trust members – can have just as big a say on our planet’s future,” said Good Energy founder, Juliet Davenport.
“If one in 10 National Trust members switched to Good Energy we’d save 320,000 tonnes of CO2 every year. That's like taking 200,000 cars off the UK's streets!”
National Trust Rural Enterprises Director, Patrick Begg, added: “We are really pleased to be able to continue our partnership with Good Energy which has helped to showcase how renewable technologies can be made to work in some of the country’s most sensitive landscapes and historic environments.
“By signing up to Good Energy our members can support the work we do to help maintain a healthy, beautiful natural environment in the face of today’s conservation challenges.”
