Corporate social responsibility
E.ON has a proud history of giving something back.
A lot of our work involves helping local communities control their energy use – a task that plays to our strengths and expertise.
Reducing fuel poverty
We’ve been working with communities to help vulnerable people out of fuel poverty by supporting local events and projects. As part of this, we are:
- Supporting local centres where families can receive one to one advice on their energy bills (and in some cases financial support)
- Collaborating with Age UK to help older people stay warm in winter and save money
- Supporting an exciting initiative that trains unemployed people to become energy efficiency experts
Improving energy awareness
We’ve also been working with children and communities to help them learn about energy in a fun, exciting way. This has seen us:
- Support schools with curriculum learning about energy issues
- Sponsor school workshops and plays that bring energy issues to life
- Work with the Scouts Association on various initiatives such as the Global Conservation Activity Badge
Funding local energy projects
We’ve also funded a range of energy projects in local communities.
Check back soon to find out about how we're increasing energy efficiency awareness, investing in renewable projects and creating opportunities in communities right across the UK.
Other charitable work
Right now, our national charity partner is the Teenage Cancer Trust – an organisation that supports young people with cancer aged between 13 and 24. We’ve raised money for them in all sorts of ways including a bike ride from Coventry to Dusseldorf that raised over £5,000.
We’re also proud supporters of Comic Relief and Children in Need. When these events come around, we don’t just get into the spirit by dressing up and fundraising. We also dedicate one of our contact centres to taking calls on behalf of these causes
