Wholegrain Digital was founded in 2007 by husband and wife, Tom and Vineeta Greenwood, with the aim of helping positive organisations to thrive online. They wanted to see whether they could create a truly sustainable business using design and tech for good.
Their customer-first approach led them to identify that WordPress was the perfect platform to meet clients’ needs, so they specialised and became London’s first WordPress agency. For over a decade, they have been using WordPress at scale for positive businesses, the public sector and charities.
Dale Vince, started the company in 1996 with sustainability in mind and it is a core of Ecotricity’s values.
Ecotricity started off as a green generation business but since grew to cover energy, transport and food, accounting for 80% of their emissions and they also giving land back to nature.
They have a unique “bills-into-mills” model, where all profits from the energy business are reinvested into new windmills, sunmills and soon gasmills.
