Looking after our planet. Go green with British Gas

With zero carbon tariffs and simple ways to save energy, we’re making it easier to do your bit for the environment – every single day.

 

All our tariffs are 100% zero carbon

That means we don’t use sources that produce harmful CO2 emissions, like coal. In fact, over three-quarters of our electricity comes from renewable sources – that's double the UK average. So whichever tariff you choose, you’ll be one step closer to net zero, without lifting a finger. Have a look for yourself, see our fuel mix.

But you can go one step further by joining the 1.6 million customers 1 on our renewable tariffs. We'll match 100% of the electricity you use with energy from wind and solar power. So you can make a cup of tea or enjoy a movie night in without costing the earth.

Go even greener with our Green Future tariff

UK green gas: a cleaner way to heat your home

Green gas is still a relatively new way to heat your home. So we'll match 6% of the gas you use on our Green Future tariff with green gas from UK generators. Then we'll offset the rest by supporting carbon-cutting projects across the globe.

Protect up to 10 trees in the UK each year

The UK is one of the least wooded parts of Europe. Join our community of Green Futurists helping to protect and plant up to 10 UK trees every year to help make our nation a greener, cleaner place to be. No gardening gloves needed.

UK woodland protection

Support green projects across the globe

Like the Kasigau Corridor in Kenya, which is home to a diverse population of wildlife including cheetahs, zebras and over 2,000 African elephants. Providing jobs to local communities helps to reduce poaching and illegal deforestation of this critically threatened forest.

Worldwide initiatives
