We believe that Australia’s energy future will be affordable and smart – delivered from renewable sources that are backed by flexible energy storage technologies which come together to power our homes, businesses and vehicles.
This future will be low emissions based, and at AGL, we accept the climate science behind this vision. We also understand that Australia has the knowledge and technologies to achieve this in a way that continues to Shape tomorrow and create new industries and opportunities for the future.
Many of our customers feel the same way about shaping a more sustainable future.
We’ve seen growing expectations for action on climate change, which according to Australia Scan’s Cultural Trends Report 2021 was the top priority people wanted governments to address in 2020, above the cost of living and the economy. Furthermore, our research shows that 80% of customers are now actively conscious about the environment, and more than a third are now ‘strongly green’.
We’re in the business of transitioning to a new energy future, which is why on 30 June 2020 AGL announced our Climate Statement and in September 2022 we published our inaugural Climate Transition Action Plan. AGL is committed to offering customers carbon neutral options.
In line with this commitment, since 16 June 2021, carbon neutral options are available across AGL’s product range. This includes carbon neutral options on gas, electricity, mobile, internet, business energy solutions, solar and battery products certified by Climate Active.
How do we offset carbon emissions?
For us to offer carbon neutral products, we must take action to reduce and remove from the environment the volume of greenhouse gas emissions associated with the essential services we supply to our customers.
