Carbon Neutral Certification

Powershop has been accredited under the government’s Climate Active Carbon Neutral Standard as a carbon neutral business since 2014.

This accreditation means our carbon neutrality for both electricity and gas has been officially recognised by the Australian Government – the first time an energy company has been fully accredited under this program.

Further detailed information on our certifications can be found on our Carbon Neutral PDS page.

We thought we’d take a moment to explain what being carbon neutral means.

Climate Active provides a carbon neutral standard for businesses and other organisations that are voluntarily seeking to be carbon neutral. The standard sets out what is required for calculating, auditing and offsetting the carbon account of an organisation, product or service to achieve carbon neutrality. It also provides guidance on what is a genuine offset unit.

No matter where you buy your electricity from, it all comes from the same central pool called the National Electricity Market (NEM). The energy grid is made up of energy from a variety of sources, including renewable generation (solar, wind, hydro) and coal-fired power.

*We commit to using Certified Emission Reduction certificates. These certify that emissions have been reduced by a Clean Development Mechanism project verified under the Kyoto Protocol.

Offsetting all the carbon associated with our customers’ energy usage at no extra cost means we’re supporting local and global environmental, social and economic initiatives. It’s part of our commitment to do the right thing by the planet to help encourage positive outcomes for Australians and communities all over the world.
