In which areas does Budget Energy perform well?

Budget Energy gets a top score for Energy Mix which is 100% renewable, and Nuclear Power as it has no involvement in this industry.

We found no criticisms of Budget Energy relating to Pollution, Animal Welfare, Armaments or Political Donations therefore the brand scores well for these criteria. Find out more about how we rate.

What can Budget Energy do to improve its score?

Budget Energy is encouraged to apply for Ethical Accreditation. If successful in its application, Budget Energy would join the certified ethical brands leading the way in progressive and sustainable practices and be permitted to display The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Mark in its communications.

We also recommend that Budget Energy works on improving its rating in the Environmental Report category, as it currently only receives a middle rating.
