Since 2016, we’ve given our customers the opportunity to offset their emissions from home electricity use, through our Go Neutral program. We expanded the program to include customers using gas in May 2020 and introduced a program in June 2020, inviting our business customers to offset their emissions through Business Carbon Neutral.
Through these programs, EnergyAustralia has offset over five million tonnes of carbon dioxide to date on behalf of our customers. Because of their action, we now have the largest Climate Active certified offset initiative in the Australian energy sector, and the second largest in the country. We buy only quality accredited international units and Australian carbon offsets (ACCUs) consistent with the government-backed Carbon Neutral Standard.
