Bulb, the green energy company and fastest-growing company in Europe, welcomed Prime Minister Boris Johnson to officially open its new central London office. The space is designed for learning and collaboration; where employees can get together while balancing hybrid work. It also highlights Bulb’s commitment to sustainability and innovation, using locally-sourced or recycled, sustainable materials throughout.
The Race to Zero is a global campaign led by the UN’s High-Level Climate Champions for Climate Action, which aims to rally leadership across businesses, cities, regions and investors for a healthy, resilient, zero carbon recovery.
The Tech Zero taskforce is also creating a world-first opportunity for young people to learn skills to secure a green tech career with the Tech Zero internship. Interns will spend time at the UK’s most exciting tech companies, working on net zero and sustainability projects.
Bulb was named the fastest-growing company in Europe this year. Now five years old, it supplies green energy as standard, with fair, transparent pricing, and technology to help members manage and reduce their energy use. It has 1.7 million members and 1,000 employees, having hired 500 people over the past year alone.
Hayden Wood, Co-founder and CEO of Bulb, said:
“We’re building a new type of big energy company, creating highly skilled green jobs and helping people lower their bills and their carbon emissions. Today, we’re delighted to announce we’re expanding the Tech Zero taskforce globally. We’ll be using the resources and toolkit we’ve developed in the UK to help companies around the world create their climate action plans and join the Race to Zero before COP26.”
