In October, LEON Restaurants joined us on our mission to end fossil fuels by switching all of their business supplies to 100% green electricity and carbon neutralised gas.

LEON are already doing some amazing things to be kinder to the planet, like saving an 86 acre plantation in Honduras with their triple certified coffee. But they go so much further than that. With a fifth of all meals eaten out of the home, the restaurant industry has a huge role to play in fighting the climate crisis and LEON are committed to a dedicated sustainability strategy. Switching to green energy supply with Ecotricity was an integral part of that process.

Ecotricity and LEON working together

We’re also working together to raise money for The Wildlife Trusts to help them with re wilding projects aligned to LEON’s ambition to support bio-diversification and sustainability. 

Kirsty Saddler, Sustainability and Values Director at LEON commented...

“Being kind to the planet is an important part of our mission so we’re excited to take a step forward towards a greener LEON and partner with Ecotricity, the world’s leading green energy provider.

We know that this is a small step for the greater good and we hope to inspire other brands and our customers to join us in choosing a responsible energy provider along with reducing their energy use and so their carbon footprint.”

Dale Vince, Founder of Ecotricity said...

“It’s fantastic to be working with LEON – I love what they do. Switching from fossil fuels is one of the biggest and easiest steps anyone can take to reduce their carbon footprint – whether it’s their home or business.  We also look forward to helping their customers and suppliers to take their own steps towards a zero carbon future.”

LEON and Ecotricity – it’s not just about energy

We’ve teamed up with LEON to offer vouchers worth £25 (£12.50 per fuel) to enjoy at Leon when you switch to Ecotricity. We’ll also donate up to £25 to The Wildlife Trusts when you.

You can also join the LEON Club to save 30% on your next order and receive exclusive offers.

Climate Clock

The Climate Clock is a version of the Doomsday clock that has been running since 1947 - this tracks the risk of global man-made disaster, through man made technology (like nuclear weapons) - displaying the minutes and seconds left before midnight, when disaster strikes. The climate crisis is a small part of the calculations made.
The climate clock uses a similar approach, but, focuses only on the climate crisis - which is the biggest and most urgent existential threat we face.
"The Climate Clock is a countdown to the biggest man-made disaster we face - but also a measure by which we can track our progress - moving from fossil to renewable energy. It shows we have no time to lose - the clock is ticking…" Dale Vince, OBE.
Ecotricity is a sponsor of the Glasgow Climate Clock that will run every night until COP26.
