Last month, Neighbourly – one of our Beacon Capital portfolio companies – announced that Bristol-based OVO Energy is the latest business to join the platform. The energy company will now use Neighbourly to facilitate its contributions to community causes, and manage corporate volunteering among its 750-strong workforce in the UK’s South West.
Neighbourly is a social platform that connects local community projects with companies that want to make a difference.
OVO Energy is a leading challenger in the UK’s energy market, serving almost 500,000 customers, and is the UK’s 10th fastest growing private company.
Luke McKeever, CEO of Neighbourly, comments:
“It’s great to welcome yet another business on board the Neighbourly platform.
“OVO Energy’s commitment to environmental issues and positive community involvement, in conjunction with its position as one of the UK’s fastest growing companies, highlights that those two characteristics can work in tandem. Supporting local communities is good for the public, it’s good for customers, and it’s good for business.”
