Did you know you can now Carbon Offset your fuel purchases?
As you know, the burning of liquid fuels such as Gas Oil, Diesel and Heating Oil releases carbon emissions directly into the atmosphere.
At Craggs Energy, we recognise the importance of carbon reduction. With the Government’s 2050 target of achieving true “Net Zero Carbon Emissions” status for the UK, finding ways to balance carbon emissions within our homes is crucial. Now, you can do it for commercial fuel purchases.
What is carbon offsetting?
As you know, when you burn fossil fuels, CO2 is released into the atmosphere and is a key contributor to global warming. The UK Government has set a target of achieving Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2050, so everyone needs to play a part by finding ways to reduce and counteract their carbon emissions.
Carbon Offsetting is where a company funds green initiatives around the world. These projects are often based in developing countries and can take the form of rolling out new green energy technologies or directly soaking up CO2 from the atmosphere by planting trees or creating offshore kelp farms.
How does it work?
Quite simply, when you next order your fuel or heating oil, ask your Craggs account manager about Carbon Offsetting.
You can order your fuel as usual then we will purchase the equivalent carbon credits on your behalf. After your fuel is delivered, we will notify you of the carbon you have offset and provide information about the projects you have helped fund.
We work with well-established and experienced Carbon Project Developers who are all verified by external and leading global Carbon Offset verification organisations such as:
