Waitrose is launching a campaign with the help of a renewable power supplier to encourage its customers to switch to green energy.

The supermarket giant and Ecotricity are offering customers a £50 Waitrose or John Lewis voucher and an energy monitor worth £29.95 to help check their electricity usage at home if they move to the energy provider’s 100% renewable electricity tariff.

They are also working with electric vehicle (EV) specialist Chargemaster to give customers the chance to apply for a free charging point that would be installed at their homes.

Quentin Clark, Waitrose Head of CSR said: “We have been working to make our own business as sustainable as possible – for example all our UK stores use 100% renewable energy and we send no food waste to landfill. But our customers tell us they want to be as sustainable as possible at home too – so we want to help make that as easy as we can.

“Choosing green energy requires no significant change to lifestyle but is the single biggest change we can make in our homes to cut carbon.”
