6 October 2020 - Telecom Plus, which trades as UW, has enjoyed over two decades of sustainable, organic growth and this has been recognised by CFI.co (Capital Finance International) with the award for Best ESG (Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance) Multi-Utility Provider (UK) 2020.
UW is the UK’s only genuine multiservice provider, offering bundled home services in a single, monthly bill to homes and businesses.
UW offers a package of environmentally-friendly initiatives that, together, could save customers up to 15% on their energy bills and do their bit for the planet:
Free LED light bulbs – help customers reduce the amount of electricity they use and the amount they pay, free of charge.
Green Energy Fixed Tariff – 100% renewable electricity sourced from solar, wind and water power.
Smart meter rollout – puts an end to estimated bills, and helps customers to cut down on the energy they’re using.
UW Woodland – UW plants a tree for every customer who signs up to all its home services, and aims to create a woodland with over 100,000 trees by 31 March 2021. That’s 100 Wembley pitches worth of trees, which will absorb 20,000 tonnes of CO2.
UW Foundation – the company’s charitable foundation supports Plastic Oceans UK. It also helps to support local charitable causes and the fight against COVID-19.
And, from a social perspective, the entire business is based on offering anyone – right across the UK – the opportunity to earn an income as a distributor or ‘Partner’ and progress towards their personal goals. 45,000-strong, UW’s Partners come from a wide range of backgrounds and skill sets and support thousands of families across the country in helping them to save time and money.
