Our business operations are proudly certified carbon neutral

At Red Energy, we’re serious about making our environment better, that’s why we’ve made changes to the way we work reducing our carbon emissions across our business. We’re proud to be the largest energy retailer in Australia to have its business operations certified carbon neutral by Climate Active. You can learn more about Climate Active by visiting their website.

Climate Active

To achieve our Climate Active certification we’ve made changes to the way we work across our business operations to reduce our carbon emissions.

  • We purchase 100% GreenPower accredited electricity to power our offices
  • We’ve upgraded our appliances and lighting to make it more energy efficient
  • We are replacing our fleet of vehicles with electric and hydrogen cars
  • We have electric bikes available for staff to use for shorter trips
  • We promote video conferencing to minimise travel
  • We’ve adopted a Paperlite policy and avoid using paper where possible.

Some carbon emissions associated with our organisation can’t be avoided, yet. To offset those we’ve purchased Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs).

Disclaimer: Red Energy is Climate Active carbon neutral certified for our business operations. This does not extend to your energy supply.
