We started the year by introducing something brand new – a green mobile phone service called Ecotalk. The mobile phone industry has a huge environmental impact that’s not really talked about, so we wanted to bring a little bit of greenness to the industry. Ecotalk is a mobile phone service with a green outcome – we use the money from our customers’ bills to give land back to nature, creating vital new habitats for British wildlife.
Dale headed to the Big Apple, where Forest Green Rovers were awarded the Climate Neutral Now prize by the UN for being the world’s first carbon neutral football club. Dale spoke about the initiatives we’ve introduced to make it the greenest club in the world, and how others can follow in our footsteps.
We went on tour, and visited more events than ever, including WOMAD, Larmer Tree, the Festival of Nature and Notting Hill Carnival, spreading our green message far and wide.
And we launched an exciting new project to help businesses save energy and money. The Virtual Power Plant is the future of energy in Britain.
