Since the beginning of 2018, customers of Sparda-Bank München have been able to obtain a special green electricity tariff. For this, the financial institution works together with the green energy supplier Polarstern. The company supplies only green electricity with the Grüner Strom label. Sparda customers thus also receive a guarantee that they are promoting the energy revolution with their electricity purchases. The core criterion of the Green Electricity certification is that the electricity suppliers support the expansion of renewable energies with a fixed amount per kilowatt hour sold. In this way, more than 1,300 energy transition projects have already been realized and co-financed. The green electricity in Polarstern's 'Really Green Electricity' product comes from the Feldkirchen run-of-river power plant near Rosenheim.
A value cooperation with green power offer
As members of the Gemeinwohl-Ökonomie, both cooperation partners aim to achieve more for people, the environment and society. The Gemeinwohl-Ökonomie is a movement that sets an example in terms of a just and social economic culture and promotes the change towards more responsibility in economy, society and environment. With their cooperation, Polarstern and Sparda-Bank München encourage their customers to act in a value-oriented way, both in their finances and in their energy purchases.
