Development is wonderful. Today, we can generate energy from sun and wind, we can produce vaccines that save lives for hardly any money and we can drive cars powered by electricity.
For GodEl, it’s important that development goes hand in hand with sustainability. GodEl wants to be more than just an electricity company, and since they were founded in 2005 they’ve had one purpose: To create a better tomorrow. In order to make a difference, they’ve had a different corporate structure than most others. GodEl is owned by GoodCause, a Swedish foundation based in Stockholm that aims to start and run companies whose returns are for charitable purposes.
Everyone who works at GodEl has the same goal. Their way of making the world better is by selling a product that everyone needs—electricity—but giving the profit to charity. There are no shareholders, no bonuses and no senior executives at GodEl.
GodEl will be joining us for our flea market in Stockholm on Sunday, together with their sister GodDryck. They are happy to answer any of your questions on site. You will also have a chance to win tickets to the sustainable music festival Way Out West this summer, all thanks to GodEl!
You can also sign up with GodEl then and there, and they’ll donate 500 sek in your name to Hand in hand, an organization that helps female entrepreneurs in developing countries world wide.
