Match the power you consume with the equivalent volume of renewable power
Many businesses are keen to demonstrate sustainable credentials by purchasing renewable energy. Others need to prove renewable status as part of their supply chain requirements. But if you don’t generate on site or have a direct contract for your supply with a renewable generator, a simpler way is to match the power you consume with the equivalent volume of renewable power supplied to the grid.
We can arrange this on your behalf by securing Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGO) certificates for the equivalent electricity volume you consume. These certificates are issued for every megawatt-hour of renewable generation fed into the grid. We will match an equivalent number of REGO certificates that are valid within a Fuel Mix Disclosure (FMD) period (which runs April-March) to your consumption that also falls within that same period.
Carbon reporting requirements
Our REGO-backed Business Energy product meets stringent carbon reporting requirements – as set by the World Resource Institute (WRI) in their Greenhouse Gas Protocol Scope 2 Guidance 2015. In addition, it has been independently verified by sustainability experts, EcoAct, to assure that our processes comply with the WRI requirements.
The EcoAct assurance stamp gives you the confidence that your supply is robustly backed by a sufficient amount of REGOs (from UK generation only) and as such is reportable as zero-carbon emissions (subject to terms and conditions) You can report zero-carbon emissions with our product without having to provide any additional evidence.
