Green Economy Classification & Mark

Good Energy recognised to be contributing to a more sustainable economy

Good Energy Group PLC, the 100% renewable electricity supplier and innovative energy services provider, announces it has been awarded the Green Economy Classification and Mark, a new initiative launched by the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) identifying London-listed companies and funds that generate over 50% of total annual revenues that contribute to the global green economy.

The creation of this Green Economy Mark allows greater visibility for investors that are interested in Green Economy activities and recognises those companies that are contributing to a greener more sustainable economy. The LSE is the first exchange in the world to introduce such a certification.

The initiative was launched on Friday 11 October 2019, at the 'Sustainable Finance and Investment Summit' hosted at the London Stock Exchange, with panel discussions and presentations covering topics on sustainable economic growth creation and the future of regulation driven by climate investment risks.

Juliet Davenport, Founder and CEO of Good Energy said: "It's great that Good Energy has been recognised by London Stock Exchange for its longstanding role in making the economy cleaner and greener. Good Energy is leading the market in a shift to low carbon energy services, as the UK moves towards a zero-carbon economy. The Green Economy Mark is really timely and means that investors in Good Energy can be reassured that their investment won't cost the earth."

About Good Energy www.goodenergy.co.uk

Good Energy was founded in 1999 by Juliet Davenport OBE with the ambition to tackle climate change by generating and investing in renewable energy. Its purpose is to power the choice of a cleaner, greener future together with its customers, employees and investors.

Since it started, the company has been supplying clean power, sourced from its own generation assets as well as from independent, UK-based renewable generators. Good Energy also pioneered a more localised approach to energy by supporting home generation, launching the HomeGen scheme in 2004, which became the blueprint for the Feed-in Tariff.

Today, it continues to support and invest in localised energy generation, as the only UK energy company with more home-generation customers than supply. From using digital innovation to help UK households and businesses manage their energy usage more efficiently, to empowering more people to generate, store and share clean power, it is leading the charge towards a cleaner, distributed energy system.
