Leading recycling and sustainability company, First Mile, has launched a new green energy service: supplying businesses with 100% renewable energy. This will help businesses of any size across the UK to supercharge their sustainability and help combat climate change by reducing their environmental impact.

First Mile Energy, in partnership with Octopus Energy, complements the company’s existing range of sustainability and recycling services, and offers First Mile customers the opportunity to make a positive difference to their carbon footprint by powering their businesses with green electricity and gas.

Customers will be able to track their green energy usage alongside their recycling rate in a combined environmental impact report. The report will outline how much waste they’ve diverted from landfill and the carbon savings that they are making by being supplied by green energy.

Founder and CEO of First Mile, Bruce Bratley, comments: “One of the founding principles of First Mile was to help businesses be more sustainable in an easy and cost-effective way, and switching to renewable energy completely supports this. The service is competitively priced, so not only will businesses get a tariff that’s great for the planet, they’ll also be getting one that’s good for their businesses too.”

Zoisa Walton, managing director of Octopus Energy for Business, comments: “We are thrilled to be building on our relationship with First Mile by offering 100% renewable energy to their business customers alongside their brilliant recycling services. By combining these two vital offerings for businesses, we can successfully help them with delivering on their sustainability targets, getting one step closer to Net Zero.”

All customers who sign up within the first month of launch will receive £100 credit on their First Mile Energy account.
