RSPB switches to 100 percent green electricity

The RSPB reports that, as of today, all 127 of its UK sites – including offices, visitor centres and reserves – will be powered by 100 percent green electricity from Ecotricity. 

According to the RSPB, the move is part of its commitment to reducing its CO2 emissions by 3 per cent per member of staff per annum through efficiencies in business, travel and office energy consumption, as well as renewable energy generation.

Harry Huyton, RSPB head of energy policy, said: “Switching to a green energy company like Ecotricity is one of the most powerful and easy steps that individuals and businesses can take to speed the transition to a low carbon economy. We’re proud to have Ecotricity as our supplier and would encourage anyone to do the same.”

Chris Organ, business sales account manager at Ecotricity, added: “This is another great move from the RSPB and it really underscores their commitment to cutting their carbon emissions. It will certainly be pleasing to know the next time I visit one of RSPB’s sites that the lights are powered by the clean, green energy from Ecotricity.”
