What we do
At Ecotricity sustainability is what drives us as a company. We were the first electricity retailer in Aotearoa New Zealand to become Toitū carbonzero certified for both our product, electricity, and for our organisation, and we are now the first and only Toitū climate positive certified electricity provider. We have won three awards from the Sustainable Business Network for innovation in the sustainability sector and communicating for impact. We can aid our customers in achieving their commitments to address climate change. We are big supporters of disruptive technology like electric vehicles, programmes that encourage consumers to modify their level and pattern of electricity use and solar energy.
How we can help you to go circular
By purchasing 100% Toitū carbonzero electricity from Ecotricity our customers can claim that their carbon emissions from electricity are zero. Emissions are offset through the purchase of certified native tree credits which enhance biodiversity as well as sequester carbon dioxide in Aotearoa New Zealand. We purchase our credits from reserves such as the Hinewai Reserve in Akaroa and the Owenga Reserve in the Chatham Islands. We also support a number of international projects. We are Living Wage Accredited and certified by COGO. We are committed to making New Zealand's electricity grid 100% renewable. We are actively promoting the development of solar farms, wind farms and residential solar to replace our reliance on fossil fuels and bring down the cost of electricity. We support our sustainability minded corporate customers by sharing their stories and promoting circular products and services. At Ecotricity we are determined to make a positive difference and love assisting our customers to do the same.
