What is carbon offsetting?

 

Carbon offsetting is a way of funding projects that help reduce global carbon emissions. If you are on a relevant tariff, for all the carbon emissions created by your gas usage, we will reduce an equivalent amount of emissions through global carbon reduction projects by purchasing Verified Emission Reduction certificates.

 

By doing this, we are funding overseas projects focused on community benefits alongside carbon emission reductions, as well as supporting high-quality renewable energy projects. All of the projects we fund are independently audited to internationally agreed standards, to prove they save the carbon they say they do.

 

We can be confident that by purchasing the equivalent amount of Verified Emission Reduction certificates associated with emissions generated from your annual gas consumption that your gas is 100% carbon offset if you are on an appropriate tariff.

 

Information on each tariff is detailed in the tariff information when you receive your quote
