Our Renewable Energy for Business plans could boost your budget and green credentials
Green credentials are important for any large corporation. An easy way to help establish these is with one of our Renewable Energy for Business contracts.
These are available for our corporate customers on fixed-term contracts, subject to availability and terms and conditions. Your sales manager can help you with all the details.
If you choose a renewable energy plan you won’t see any difference in your power supply. But every megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity you use will be matched with energy created from renewable sources.
In addition to the environmental benefits, the contract is backed by Guarantee of Origin (GoO) certificates. These demonstrate that electricity has been produced from renewable energy sources.
If you have GoO certificates, for each MWh of consumption used you'll be able to report zero carbon emissions from your electricity consumption.
This is important under the GHG Protocol Scope 2 guidelines (GHG is an acronym for greenhouse gas – you can read more about the protocol below).
We'll send you an annual report showing the exact GoO certificate IDs that cover each MWh of energy consumed.
This should all help to support your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) agenda.
All FTSE 100 companies need to include details of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in their annual reports. In addition, so do all organisations compiling a corporate GHG inventory following the Corporate Standard. This includes companies, governments, NGOs and other organisations.
The GHG Protocol sets the global standard on how to measure, manage and report greenhouse gas emissions. It was developed by the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council on Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
The GHG Protocol Scope 2 is an amendment to the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard and sets the accounting and reporting guidelines for Scope 2 emissions.
Scope 2 emissions are indirect emission sources generated from consumption of purchased electricity, heat, steam or cooling.
