  • tree planting in Australia and more
  • It's simple, effective and certified

Help us reach one million carbon neutral customers

Our aim is to have one million customers opt in to Go Carbon Neutral by the end of 2020. Why? Because we want to start a movement towards cleaner, more affordable energy. It’s a big challenge.

The EnergyAustralia Go carbon neutral program is available to existing residential customers now. New residential customers who sign up after 24 November 2016 will need to wait until they have been with EnergyAustralia for six months to be eligible. The program will run until 31 December 2020 when we will assess how effective it’s been and advise customers of what more we can do in the second stage of the program.

*This is an indicative estimate of the number of trees needed to offset one year of emissions from an average residential household’s electricity use. For more information about this estimate see the carbon neutral frequently asked questions.
