ActewAGL Retail has been independently certified as carbon-neutral through Climate Active for a second year running—both for ActewAGL operations, as well as its carbon-neutral gas product. 

Climate Active is an initiative between the Australian Government and Australian businesses that voluntarily support climate action.

Climate Active certification verifies businesses that have credibly achieved net zero emissions. Organisations must show rigorous adherence to standards to become certified. 

Certification enables consumers to easily identify carbon-neutral businesses and products, so they can choose brands making a difference by reducing their environmental impact. 

ActewAGL Retail general manager Rachael Turner said, “We are thrilled to have again been certified as carbon-neutral by Climate Active. Customers who choose ActewAGL will know they’re making a great choice and helping with collective action on climate change. Achieving this position of net zero emissions is another significant way we are demonstrating our commitment, in practical terms, to a more sustainable future—for our people, customers and the broader community.” 

To further reflect their strong position on sustainability, ActewAGL recently launched its Sustainability Promise, which includes a commitment to maintaining Climate Active Certification, helping one in four ACT households drive an EV by 2030, and helping 30% of ACT homes to be powered by solar by 2025. 

“As the leading energy retailer in the region, we recognise the responsibility we have to provide products and services that help reduce environmental impacts and meet the evolving needs of our community,” Turner said.
