We are New Zealands ONLY provider of carboNZero Certified Electricity …. and we’re proud of it.
carboNZero certification demonstrates to our customers that electricity from ECOTRICITY is certified carbon neutral.
Being carboNZero certified means we purchase from certified wind and hydro generation stations and we measure all greenhouse gases we generate from those stations. We have detailed programmes in place which follow United Nations Product Protocols to measure and minimise our greenhouse gas emissions.
Any remaining emissions that can’t be avoided are offset by purchasing verified carbon credits, using only New Zealand Native Bush Carbon Credits, making ECOTRICITY not only carbon neutral but supporting New Zealands biodiversity.
Have a look at the difference in emissions from National Average electricity and Ecotricity carboNZero Certified Electricity below.
We’ve also just won, not one, but Two Sustainable Business Network Awards which recognises the efforts we are putting into Community Ownership, Transport Electrification and supporting the developing of Renewable Energy.
