DNB buys renewable energy documented by ECOHZ

29 April 2014 – “Buying electricity from renewable energy sources is an effective way to neutralize the impact of greenhouse gases. For us, it is important to diligently document that we use renewable energy sources,” says Dag Arne Kristensen, Executive Vice President CSR & Corporate identity, DNB.

Guarantees of Origin from renewable energy sources is the only way to document renewable energy consumption. We are delighted that DNB has taken this significant step,” says Tom Lindberg, Managing Director, ECOHZ. “We see DNB as an important partner and hope that we can continue to help the bank find the best renewable solutions to support their environmental commitment. At the same time, we hope that other large companies will follow DNB’s decision and put energy behavior so clearly on the agenda.”

DNB, Norway’s largest financial services group, aims to reduce its carbon footprint and has signed an agreement with ECOHZ to buy renewable energy. DNB is among the first large Norwegian companies that have committed to use renewable energy documented by Guarantees of Origin. ECOHZ is Europe’s largest independent supplier of Guarantees of Origin from renewable energy.
