Type of certification
How long have you been certified carbon neutral?
Since June 2021.
Why did you choose to go carbon neutral?
As an environmentally conscious company we want to minimise the impact of our customer’s energy usage as well as our own. Our ultimate aim is to be part of the solution towards ensuring the world is a better place for our future generations.
As a brand, we are focused on offering our customers plans and products that meet our company philosophy and commitment to encouraging the community to take positive action.
We chose to go carbon neutral to further elevate our brand’s credibility in the renewable energy sector and support the environment through reducing our carbon footprint.
What are the anticipated benefits of your carbon neutral certification?
Upon receiving the carbon neutral certification, we see considerable benefits both internally and externally for our brand.
The certification provides trust in our brand within the community through demonstrating accountability of our actions. The accreditation will allow us to promote the carbon neutral message, our strategies and efforts towards achieving this and ultimately the benefits of signing up to our most popular energy plan.
Showing consumers that we are ethical and serious about our commitment to the environment will ensure we attract the right staff and drive internal engagement.
What offset projects do you support?
Wind power, hydropower and hydroelectric projects in India.
Why did you choose these projects?
The projects were chosen to support renewable energy in line with our corporate objectives, providing sustainable and renewable energy and lowering our carbon footprint.
The projects will create direct and indirect benefits for the local communities. As a result of project development work, the projects will help alleviate local poverty; create employment opportunities and enhance local infrastructure. This will lead to the spread of wind power in the Gujarat region.
How can customers support you?
By switching to one of Nectr’s 100% Carbon neutral plans or 100% GreenPower plans, Australians can reduce their impact on the environment.
What else are you doing to reduce emissions?
As part of our commitment to a renewable energy future, our owner is investing in the Barcaldine (Queensland) and Bannerton (Victoria) solar farms. They are also focused on expanding their solar farm investments and plan to build two new solar farms in NSW.
Now more than ever, households are spending more time at home and in most cases seeing their energy usage increase. We are invested in helping our customers become more energy efficient and investing back into the environment.
We offer 100% Carbon offset plans and 100% GreenPower plans that can help our customers and support all Australians to reduce their impact on the environment.
