Story so far

Since the first Green Britain Day, we've been working to host events, share ideas, promote sustainability in communities and schools, and help our members cut their carbon footprints through ideas like the Low Carbon Rush Hour.


Creating a sustainable, low-carbon business can help to bring employees together, save money, even put more of a spring in your step on Monday morning. From the Low Carbon Rush Hour to simple, energy-saving tips, put sustainability at the heart of your business plan.

Sustainability in schools

EDF Energy’s Programme for Greener Schools is centred on the Pod, an online resource with lesson plans, activities and games to help teach pupils about environmental subjects such as energy, water, waste, transport and biodiversity. Since its launch in September 2008, the Pod has engaged over 4 million schoolchildren in more than 14,900 registered schools.
