Ecotricity – Community Innovation Award Winners

The Community Innovation Award, sponsored by Eco Pro Cleaning Co, recognises outstanding community innovations that have the potential to transform New Zealand.  Ecotricity is 100% Kiwi but also 49% Community Owned through its partner Pioneer Energy.

The judges were particularly impressed with the way Ecotricity allows New Zealanders to seamlessly improve their environmental impact, making it easy to make their electricity carbon neutral by switching to Ecotricity.  Ecotricity contracts only with carboNZero Certified Electricity from wind and hydro sources, and supports the uptake of solar and batteries.

By this time next year we are targeting saving 8 million kilograms of CO2e each year for our customers.

The SBN judges said that Ecotricity reflects a bold and trans-formative commitment to sustainability through espousing a 100% Zero Emission Electricity future, and a vision to electrify New Zealand’s vehicle fleet.
