An Australian Government initiative, Climate Active provides a certification program for businesses and organisations aiming to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to climate action.

“We are delighted to have received carbon-neutral certification for a third year running,” ActewAGL Retail general manager Rachael Turner says.

“Climate Active certification represents verification that ActewAGL has taken credible and effective steps to measure, reduce and offset greenhouse gas emissions, to ultimately achieve a state of net-zero emissions for both our operations and carbon-neutral gas product.

“An increasing number of customers are signing up to ActewAGL’s Carbon-Neutral gas product, meaning they can continue to use their existing gas appliances while reducing their greenhouse gas emissions—at a cost of only $1.50 per week”.

ActewAGL has been actively taking steps to support the transition to net zero emissions and is well on the way to delivering on its sustainability promise to help 30% of ACT homes to be powered by solar by 2025 and one in four ACT households driving an electric vehicle (EV) by 2030.

To support these goals, ActewAGL’s award-winning evHub provides information, tools and products to help local customers drive an EV sooner.
