Bonn, May 17, 2022. With immediate effect, Deutsche Umwelthilfe (DUH) expands the circle of supporters of Grüner Strom Label e.V. Thus, together with NABU, BUND, Deutscher Naturschutzring, EUROSOLAR, IPPNW and VERBRAUCHER INITIATIVE, it stands behind the vision of the association: a 100 % renewable energy supply in all sectors and at all levels.

Sascha Müller-Kraenner, DUH's national managing director, commented: "The switch to renewable energies is more important today than ever before. Only renewable energies offer real independence and security of supply. To stop the climate crisis, energy from the sun and wind is essential anyway. Consumers need reliable criteria for green electricity and green gas, especially in times of uncertainty. That's what the Green Electricity and Green Gas labels provide. We are pleased that we can now play a role in shaping the labels as a further sponsor. In this way, we are expanding our commitment to the rapid energy transition and want to help ensure that consumers have a good and transparent choice when they switch to green electricity and gas suppliers."

This requires sensible quality criteria for energy products, which Grüner Strom Label e.V. is constantly developing with the Green Electricity and Green Gas eco-energy labels. The different perspectives of the now seven supporting associations are incorporated in this process. Thus, the quality labels for green electricity and biogas tariffs represent the diversity of civil society commitment in Germany.

"As a new sponsor, Deutsche Umwelthilfe enriches us with valuable perspectives and a high level of expertise. We offer consumers important orientation when choosing a sustainable energy product," says Dietmar Oeliger, Chairman of Grüner Strom Label e.V. "Grüner Strom Label e.V. and Deutsche Umwelthilfe e.V. are united by the conviction that a complete energy supply based on renewable energies must succeed quickly for reasons of climate protection. But the issue of security of supply is also coming increasingly into focus with the war in Ukraine," concludes Oeliger.

The sponsors of Grüner Strom Label e.V. are several non-profit associations whose purpose is to protect the environment, promote renewable energies and use energy sparingly, efficiently and in a way that conserves resources. For more than 40 years, Deutsche Umwelthilfe has been campaigning for sustainable lifestyles and economic forms that respect ecological limits. At the same time, the association fights for the preservation of biological diversity and the protection of natural assets as well as for climate protection.

The now seven supporting associations are united by the vision of a 100 % renewable energy supply in all sectors and at all levels. The energy supply should be nature-compatible, decentralized, citizen-oriented, fair and free of pollutants. The focus is on promoting new energy transition projects, such as photovoltaic systems, wind turbines, and energy efficiency, e-mobility or educational measures. So far, the Green Electricity and Green Gas eco-energy labels have co-financed and implemented more than 1,600 energy transition projects across Germany with over 80 million euros.

The Green Electricity and Green Gas seals of approval are the only eco-energy labels in Germany that are recommended and supported by leading environmental associations.

It is now clear: in 2022, 2.2 TWh of green electricity was consumed with the Grüner Strom-Label and 1.3 TWh of biogas with the Grünes Gas-Label - a new record for both energy sources. The sales enable investments in the expansion of renewable energy.
