How to support carbon offset projects
We're enabling our customers to reduce their carbon footprint by contributing to pre-purchased carbon offsets. These offsets come from projects that our team has carefully selected for the benefits they drive for communities.
When it comes to choosing carbon offsets, there’s a wide range of options to look at. But we believe in selecting projects that we think will make a real difference.
This is why we’re supporting projects with Sustainable Development Goals developed by the United Nations.
The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals are a blueprint for achieving a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.
Whilst we surrendered carbon offset credits purchased in the Australian Westmere Regeneration Project, this is an example of a project we consider drives benefits consistent with the Sustainable Development Goals.
That means that when our customers choose to offset emissions associated with their electricity and gas plans, they’re contributing to projects that support initiatives like native forest regeneration.
