Green Energy

Why is renewable energy important?

According to the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) we’re on course for a temperature rise of 3-5 degrees by 2100. The International Energy Agency states that whilst limiting warming to two degrees is “technically feasible, it requires a fundamental transformation of the global energy system” – highlighting that renewable electricity production needs to more than double by 2020.

 

You can make a difference

By taking steps to secure green energy, Corporate Buyers have the power to scale up renewable power provision around the world, sending a signal to the markets and securing cleaner, more efficient power sources that help tackle climate change, create jobs and protect precious ecosystems.

Funding renewable energy is also good for your business. It increases security by reducing dependence on fossil fuels, improves reputation, shows environmental leadership and can help deliver emission reduction targets.

Leading organisations around the world are already taking action. ClimateCare can help your business use its purchasing power for good in an assured and cost effective way, meeting the expectations of your customers, staff and investors and securing your long term future.

How does it work?

With ClimateCare Green Energy you can take quick, cost effective action to support the expansion of renewable energy provision around the world:

 

1. European Green Energy
Support the expansion of renewable energy provision in Europe. European Energy Certificates are a recognised and cost effective way for your business to take responsibility for Scope 2 emissions. Report your annual electricity use to ClimateCare who will source, purchase and retire European Energy Certificates on your behalf. This matches your energy use to an equivalent amount of clean renewable power.

 

2. International Green Energy
Support renewable energy provision in locations and technologies of your choice by purchasing carbon credits from best practice renewable energy projects. Choose to support wind, hydro power, energy from waste, or geothermal energy. You can also opt to support off-grid energy provision through solar technology and clean cooking programmes. Where carbon credits are purchased from projects in the same country as your operations, new rules mean you are able to report net zero carbon from electricity usage in your GHG reporting.
