See the video they made about EKOenergy and one of our campaigns:
#EKOenergy is a nonprofit ecolabel for renewable energy, and it is available in 30+ countries. The ecolabel was launched to help consumers purchase the most sustainable renewable energy that has minimum impact on ecosystems and biodiversity. The ecolabel is supported a network of 45 NGO members from 35 countries. We launched the label in 2013 in Europe and have gradually broadened our reach.
The secretariat of EKOenergy is hosted by the Finnish Assocation for Nature Conservation, in Helsinki. At the EKOenergy Secretariat, there are 4 employees and an average of 5 volunteers and trainees.
