CDP and ECOHZ renew Global Renewable Energy partnership

In July 2016, CDP and ECOHZ renewed their partnership and ECOHZ remains a global CDP Gold Renewable Energy Partner.

The partnership enables ECOHZ and CDP to share knowledge and work together to effectively support and serve the corporate community adopting renewable energy solutions.  CDP and ECOHZ combined efforts make it easier and more efficient for energy consumers to switch to or consume more renewable energy.

“ECOHZ help companies globally to reduce their carbon emissions through renewable energy solutions, and we’re delighted that they will continue as a CDP gold renewable energy partner.  They will provide a valuable tool for companies responding to CDP, driving changes in energy behavior with a wide choice of green power products and ECOHZ GO2, a new financing mechanism to build more renewable energy” says Paul Simpson, CEO at CDP.

“I think our partnership with CDP is a good example of how the combined strengths of a leading NGO and a commercial market player  bring value to the corporate world and accelerate changing energy behavior,” says Preben Munch, Director, Corporate Customers & Strategic Partnerships at ECOHZ.

CDP’s climate change program works to reduce companies’ greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change risk.  CDP works with renewable energy partners to motivate and facilitate corporations procurement, tracking, and generation of new renewable power thus helping companies become leaders in sustainable energy. CDP believes that improving corporate awareness through measurement and disclosure is vital to the effective management of carbon and climate change risk. CDP requests information on the risks and opportunities of climate from the world’s largest companies on behalf of 827 institutional investor signatories with a combined US$100 trillion in assets.

ECOHZ has been a renewable energy partner of CDP since 2014, and became the first global CDP gold renewable energy partner in 2015.  ECOHZ is also a partner in CDP’s Action Exchange program, which proposes zero carbon power solutions to the program members and their suppliers.
