EKOenergy for your company
On the European market consumers can choose the origin of their electricity. Renowned organisations like CDP and standards like LEED and GHG Protocol recommend that companies make use of this freedom. This way, not only can companies buy renewable electricity, but they can go one step further, and show leadership.
Buying EKOenergy certified electricity is a way for you to show leadership. LEED refers to EKOenergy as “the best available pan-European option for the sustainable and additional consumption of renewable electricity within Europe”. In addition, the Greenhouse Gas Protocol lists EKOenergy as one of the ways to go one step further: see the Chapter 11 of its Scope 2 Guidance. How to take that extra step?

EKOenergy via Guarantees of Origin
Large consumers or consumers with premises on many different places may choose to purchase EKOenergy ‘unbundled’. They can do that by buying physical electricity and Guarantees of Origin separately. All main European sellers of Guarantees of Origin can help you purchase EKOenergy in that way. See the list of licensed sellers of Guarantees of Origin.
EKOenergy outside Europe
The EKOenergy criteria are formulated in such a way that they can be implemented worldwide. EKOenergy will arrive in China and Taiwan in 2015. Contact the EKOenergy Secretariat for more information.
EKOenergy in your communication
