National Trust has announced it has renewed its partnership with a UK renewable energy supplier.

The two-year extension follows the first agreement which was signed in 2012.

Good Energy and the charity aim to encourage the Trust’s members to switch to the green electricity supplier as a step to tackle climate change.

Those members who switch to Good Energy’s 100% renewable electricity or dual fuel tariffs will receive a gift card worth up to £40.

For every year the energy firm retains a customer, it will donate the same amount to the charity to help support its conservation work.

Juliet Davenport, CEO and Founder of Good Energy said: “Climate change is everyone’s business and we want more people to be aware not only of the issues facing us but also to give simple and practical steps on what we can all do to be part of the solution.

“As the world’s politicians meet in Paris to thrash out an agreement to limit climate change, we think that normal people – like Trust members – can have just as big a say on our planet’s future. If one in 10 National Trust members switched to Good Energy we’d save 320,000 tonnes of CO­2 every year. That’s like taking 200,000 cars off the UK’s streets!”

Prince Charles and UK Prime Minister David Cameron called for climate action in Paris at COP21.
