By offsetting your gas carbon footprint, you can keep your energy Flo-ing while making a positive impact on our planet.
What is carbon offsetting?
Carbon Offsetting counteracts the carbon from your homes energy usage by helping to support projects that provide sustainable development in communities around the world, that either reduce or absorbing carbon dioxide.
The benefits of carbon offsetting
Many of us are environmentally conscious in our everyday lives, such as recycling or reducing our use of plastics. Now you can help deliver economic, social, and health benefits to different communities around the world, while reducing your own carbon footprint and impact on the climate.
How do I offset my carbon?
For a one-off fee of less than 2.5 pence per day*, we will support you in reducing your carbon footprint from the gas we supply to you over your two-year supply agreement by purchasing carbon offsetting credits for activities that reduce greenhouse gases or absorb carbon dioxide.
What projects does carbon offsetting support?
Your carbon offsetting fee goes towards supporting great projects across the globe** - such as the Kariba REDD+ Forest Protection in Zimbabwe, Africa.
Since its launch in 2011, the Kariba REDD+ project has avoided more than 18 million tonnes of carbon dioxide from emissions into the atmosphere by preventing deforestation and land degradation in an area of nearly 785,000 hectares.
The project also continues to support regional sustainable development, the independence and well-being of local communities, and protects numerous vulnerable and endangered species.
