First UK energy consultancy wins sustainability certification

First UK energy consultancy wins sustainability certification

Almach Energy has become the first energy consultancy in the UK to achieve certification for social and environmental performance as well as accountability and transparency.

It joins more than 1,950 businesses in 120 industries across 42 countries that have received the Certified B Corporation status - all aiming to use the power of markets to solve social and environmental problems.

That includes more than 111 companies in the UK, which collectively have revenues of above £750 million and employ 3,500 people.

Bulb became the first UK energy company to receive the standard earlier this year.

Since 2015, Almach Energy has been buying renewable energy for small and large businesses as well as public sector organisations. It is said to be the only energy consultancy committed to buying only green energy for its clients.

B Corporation told ELN the energy consultancy has measured its impact on workers, suppliers, community, customers and the environment and "met comprehensive, transparent and verified performance standards".

Juan Pablo Cerda, Managing Director at Almach Energy said: “The B Corp ethos is perfectly aligned with our mission and social responsibility targets; this certification reiterates our strong commitment to the environment, clients and people we work with.”
