Committed to create food that not only tastes good, does good but is kind to the planet, Naturally Fast Food restaurant LEON has partnered with Ecotricity.

From October, the world’s first green electricity supplier will be providing green and carbon neutral energy to LEON restaurants across the country.

Connected by similar values, Ecotricity is dedicated to tackling climate change through energy, food and transport and will be a key partner to LEON in helping the brand reduce its energy use, as the business works to be carbon neutral by 2030.

In addition, in a joint commitment to help guests go greener and encourage other businesses to make a change, every customer who signs up to Ecotricity will receive a £25 LEON voucher. In return, Ecotricity will donate £25 to their regional Wildlife Trust, to support rewilding projects.

Kirsty Saddler, sustainability and values director, commented: “Being kind to the planet  is an important part of our mission so we’re excited to take a step forward towards a greener LEON and partner with Ecotricity, the world’s leading green energy provider.

We know that this is a small step for the greater good and we hope to inspire other brands and our customers to join us in choosing a responsible energy provider along with reducing their energy use and so their carbon footprint.”

LEON hosted its first supplier event at the end of October bringing partners together to outline its sustainability strategy, with Ecotricity announcing its contract incentive, widely intended to make it easier for suppliers to benefit from the decision LEON has made for Ecotricity to be its green energy provider.

Dale Vince, founder of Ecotricity, said “It’s fantastic to be working with LEON – I love what they do. Switching from fossil fuels is one of the biggest and easiest steps anyone can take to reduce their carbon footprint – whether it’s their home or business. We also look forward to helping its customers and suppliers to take their own steps towards a zero-carbon future.”
