Putting our energy into the community

Supplying millions of UK homes with gas and electricity every day makes npower an active part of many local communities. That's why we are determined to use our energy and expertise to put something back.

CommunityMark developed by Business in the Community

npower has successfully been reaccredited with the CommunityMark until 2018, the UK’s national standard for leadership and excellence in community investment, run by Business in the Community, HRH The Prince of Wales’s responsible business network. Since receiving the prestigious mark for the first time in 2007, npower remains part of a leading group of 36 businesses who collectively invested over £2.06 billion in their communities in 2013-2014, who are engaging one in three employees in community programmes.

The sought after standard is given to businesses that pass a rigorous assessment process, demonstrating how the organisation puts community at the heart of its business. npower continues to be recognised for its 11 year partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support; its Health Through Warmth scheme that has run for 15 years; its volunteering opportunities for employees and its Energy Specialist Team that helps consumers save and manage their energy more effectively.
