Go green with British Gas
(yes, really!)

Exploring the forest

We’re making it easier to go green without the extreme. Here’s how.

All our electricity tariffs are 100% zero carbon as standard

Every single bit of electricity you get from us is zero carbon. That means we don’t use sources, like coal, that produce nasty emissions. In fact, over two-thirds of our electricity comes from renewable sources. So whichever tariff you choose, you’ll be one step closer to carbon-neutral – without lifting a finger.

Go further with 100% renewable electricity – 1.6m1 already do

When you choose one of our green tariffs, we’ll match 100% of the electricity you use with energy from renewable sources – that’s things like wind and solar power. So you can make a cup of tea or enjoy a movie night in without costing the earth.

And to help you really earn those green credentials, there’s our Green Future tariff

Upgrade to our greenest tariff and we’ll match 100% of the energy you use with renewable electricity and carbon-neutral gas. Plus, you’ll protect up to 10 UK trees every year to help make our nation a greener, cleaner place to be. No gardening gloves needed.
