Who Are We
Good Energy Initiative is a Climate Changing Social Enterprise, which has been operating since 2006. The initiative develops unique and innovative projects for the implementation of sustainable technologies and environmental performance, while achieving social gains.
The projects combine practical ecology together with education and publicity. We initiate and run our projects within educational institutions, rural and urban communities from Israel’s social and geographical periphery, nonprofit organizations, enterprises and businesses.
Our fundamental goal is to increase human commitment to environmental protection. The central themes of our work include reducing the extraction and use of fossil fuels (oil, coal and natural gas) for energy, and reducing landfilling of various wastes in huge pits in the Negev. We received a beautiful world with Devine instructions to work it on the one hand, and sustain it on the other.
We are humbly trying our best to do our part in this deal, with total belief in our way and with considerable pleasure.
What We Do
We create ground-breaking projects which strive to demonstrate the environmental, economic and social feasibility of using appropriate technologies and sustainable procedures. We produce practical living examples in order to bring these issues to the minds and hearts of policy makers, representatives of local government, education officials and the general public.
We actively operate to increase local employment, reduce the consumption of polluting energy and reduce the harmful practice of landfilling. Most of our projects are based on the global mechanism of voluntary offsetting greenhouse gas emissions termed Voluntary Social Carbon Offsetting.
