Conscious Consumers

Meridian is proud to have partnered with Conscious Consumers – a small innovative kiwi company with big goals on making a positive difference.

Meridian is now the first Conscious Consumers accredited power company in New Zealand.

Before forming this partnership and becoming accredited,
Conscious Consumers made sure that we were walking the talk with our sustainable and ethical practices.
