A new survey carried out by renewable energy specialist, Ørsted, has revealed that majority (73%) of UK consumers prefer to shop for products from companies that use renewable energy over those that do not.
The survey indicates there is strong commercial benefit to pursuing a cleaner, greener business strategy with consumers consciously preferring businesses that use renewable energy sources.
In a look into consumer attitudes, Ørsted also found that 86% of consumers believe it’s worth buying products made using 100% renewable energy, while 60% of consumers showed a preference for logos displaying a green message.
Jeff Whittingham, Managing Director of Ørsted Sales UK, said: “We know that a move to green energy makes sense for the environment, but these latest statistics show that it is also good for business, making renewable energy a commercial choice as well as an ethical one."
