A Chippenham-based business has been nominated for an environmental award by this year’s Wiltshire Life Awards.

Renewable energy company Good Energy has been shortlisted in the Green Business Award category, which recognises sustainable local employers.

Good Energy matches consumers with 100 percent renewable electricity by sourcing their power from a network of 1,700 solar farms, wind farms and hydroelectric projects.

The company’s sustainability and facilities manager, Cherish Jackson, was pleased the company had been recognised for its work.

She said: “We’re thrilled to be shortlisted for such a prestigious award. 

“Everyone has a role to play in tackling the climate crisis but especially major local employers, and we’re keen to lead the way in showing what’s possible. 

“We are passionate about our planet and want to create a cleaner, greener future for all.”

The business also aims to reduce its own impact on the environment.

Good Energy’s carbon emissions have been cut by moving to a modern office with lower energy bills and adopting a hybrid working model that allows its 250 staff to partly work from home.

The ceremony will take place at the Devizes Corn Exchange in March.

The company also offers a cycle to work scheme alongside the chance to lease low emission vehicles. They are committed to a 50 percent reduction in emissions by 2030.
