Power NI is given a top rating for its Environmental Report, as Energia Group’s Responsible Business Report 2023 contains targets, and for Nuclear Power as its mix contains 0% nuclear energy.

We found no criticisms of Power NI relating to Pollution, Animal Welfare, or Armaments, therefore it scores well for these criteria.

How can Power NI improve its ethical rating?

The below-benchmark score that Power NI is awarded is the result of an evaluation of multiple ethical criteria.
