Comment from Co-operative Energy on Npower job losses

Posted on 28 November 2013

Ramsay Dunning, group general manager at Co-operative Energy said: “We’re a customer owned energy company which means we’re answerable to our customers and not to shareholders. Npower’s disappointing decision to move jobs from the UK to India, we believe is made in the interest of its shareholders, as it needs to increase profits to push up its share price. Our highly competitive prices show how it is possible to give customers best value and provide jobs in the UK.                                                                                        

“We know that it’s important to our customers that their energy is supplied by a UK company. Not only does that mean that all our employees are based in the UK and that we pay our taxes in the UK too, but that we’re committed to creating jobs and supporting the local economy. Since our launch in 2011 we have created 200 new jobs in the West Midlands and we are committed to recruiting more people and creating additional jobs for the UK as we grow.”
