Co-operative partnerships. Working with like-minded organisations

Posted on 6 May 2015

Co-operative Energy Partnerships

As an energy provider with a passion for helping to improve the communities which we serve, it is important for us to partner with like-minded organisations.

Co-operative Energy is run on four key values: those of Democracy, Openness, Equality and Social Responsibility. These are mirrored by the values and principles of the organisations we partner with up and down the country.

Our partnerships not only help to strengthen the Co-operative Energy brand – thereby securing our future as a low cost, ethical energy provider – but also assist in providing much-needed contributions to our partners’ chosen charities, supporting local community initiatives and sports supporter trusts, and continuing ongoing efforts to reduce C02 emissions.

Michelle Porter, Co-operative Energy Partnership Manager, told us: “It’s exciting to be a member of a partnership in which both parties have a shared value: seeing the customer put first”.

Michelle explained: “Social responsibility is now a key focus for many UK businesses. Through our partnerships we are able help to promote low cost, ethical energy tariffs while helping our partner in supporting their chosen charity and community involvement.”

Current Co-operative Energy partnerships include:

Supporters Direct
Dogs for the Disabled
Teenage Cancer Trust
Green Energy Marketplace         
Women’s Aid
Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children
Woodcraft Folk
NUS
