We’re offsetting too

As well as helping you improve your carbon footprint, we’re also doing our bit by offsetting the fuel our delivery vehicles use. This will make sure that, every day, we’re reducing our overall carbon and environmental impact.

Why carbon offsetting matters

  • 1 It lets you balance your carbon footprint
    Carbon offsetting makes a positive contribution to the environment, compensating for your carbon emissions.
  • 2 You’re supporting sustainable projects

  • 3 You’re helping combat global climate change
    Offsetting plays a vital role in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the most cost-effective and economically-efficient manner.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Carbon Offsetting?

    We all need to do our bit if we’re to hit the UK government’s net zero emissions target of 2050, and carbon offsetting is one way in which we can all improve our carbon footprint.

    Carbon offsetting helps lower carbon emissions by a measurable and verifiable amount by funding sustainable projects around the world that either reduce carbon dioxide or absorb it. It’s the internationally recognised way to compensate for the emissions you produce by funding projects around the world. To reduce your carbon footprint, simply receive your usual LPG refill and we’ll automatically fund climate solutions to offset your fuel usage.

  • How do I know carbon is being offset?

    You have our assurance that carbon offsetting is included with every delivery of LPG we make, and at no additional cost to you. It’s one of the valuable benefits we offer as part of our LPG Package.

    We’re working in partnership with Carbon Footprint Ltd. They are certified under the Quality Assurance Standard (QAS) and originally set up by the UK Government. Now run as an independent not-for-profit organisation, they are independently audited to a rigorous 40-point plan annually.

  • How much does carbon offsetting cost me?

    This is the great thing about carbon offsetting with Northern Energy. We are not charging customers we supply with Premium Heating Oil or LPG anything extra. It’s all part of the service, as we all need to do our bit towards hitting net zero by 2050.

    Check out our blog to find out more about carbon offsetting with Northern Energy and how it works.

  • What projects will be funded?

    We have supported a range of different sustainable projects on your behalf. These include tree planting, wind farms, and carbon-reducing initiatives in communities around the world which also deliver economic, social, and health benefits.

    Carbon offsetting with Northern Energy is included with every LPG refill we make, and we will continue to plant trees, making it easy for those living in off-grid homes to do their bit for the environment.

    As well as helping you improve your carbon footprint, we’re also doing our bit – we offset the fuel used by our own delivery wagons.
